The 2017 Columbia Valley Chardonnay – Fragrant hints of fruit and floral essence on the nose. In the glass is a balanced array of citrus and lingering pear. A refreshing spin on Chardonnay. Stainless steel fermented, non-malolactic. Sourced from Wahluke Slope and Ancient Lakes AVA’s. The Chardonnay grape thrives in Washington’s loam and sandy soils – deposits left from the Missoula floods. These soils help influence flavors within the Chardonnay fruit that are both rich and developed, with hints of mineral and stone fruit.
