Renegade Wine Company Chardonnay 2020, Columbia Valley, Washington

Renegade Wine Co. is a project from Trey Busch of Sleight of Hand Cellars, Walla Walla, Washington. At Renegade, Busch buys juice from other wineries to bottle wines at compelling price points. The 2020 Renegade Chardonnay was fermented and aged in all stainless steel, no oak! What you get is a mouthful of clean, crisp tree fruits like green apples and Bosc pears, with a beautiful spice component. The fresh acidity will complement most foods, and the versatility makes for both that ‘deck wine’ to get you through the hot summer days, as well as that bottle to take out by the fire pit on a cool autumn night.
