Balancing Act Chardonnay 2018, Walla Walla, Washington

Balancing Act is a new label from Tamarack Cellars. The idea is to produce affordable wines that simply over deliver. The wines are made in a hyper-negociant model. Some of the wine is made in house, some is from traditional build sources and some is from very high end wineries that have a few extra barrels. The wine sources are blended to create a final, balanced and delicious wine; hence the name Balancing Act. This unoaked Chardonnay shows bright fruit on the nose, including fresh cut green apple, pear and banana leading into spiced vanilla cream. The palate brings stone fruit flavors and balances acidity and roundness, expressing honey and caramel, leading into a clean finish.
