Wine Review: This Washington State Chardonnay has an inviting bouquet of orange blossom, honey, Golden Delicious apple, tropical fruit and oak. It is pale gold colored. I found it to be a medium bodied creamy wine with balanced acidity and fruity flavors of pear, citrus and hazelnuts. The dry lingering finish has notes of baked bread. Enjoy salmon with citrus mustard sauce with this wine. - Mark

Winemaker Notes: Columbia Winery Chardonnay offers bright aromas of pear, apple and hints of tropical fruits that extend to the palate. A balanced acidity and integrated sweet vanilla oak notes create an elegant Chardonnay that is distinctly Northwest. We love this wine with Dungeness crab or Penn Cove mussels.
