Wine Review: This pale yellow colored unoaked Chardonnay opens with and mild green apple and pear bouquet with a hint of vanilla. On the palate, this wine is medium to full bodied, slightly acidic and shows a nice mouthfeel. The flavor profile is mild lime and green tea blend with hints of apple and tangerine. The finish is dry and its flavors linger nicely. This unoaked Chard is very food friendly and would pair well with a bourbon and butter grilled Steelhead Trout. Enjoy - Ken
Winemaker Notes: Aromas of golden apple, fig, Asian pear, raisin oatmeal cookie, hay and green tea. Butter and creamy lees on the palate. Supple yet firm. Our unoaked Chardonnay is a crisp, citrus-tinged white wine, pairing beautifully with Northwest cuisine.
