14 Hands Vineyards Chardonnay 2014
Light straw color. Very little on the nose. Light to medium bodied with hints of tropical fruit and very little oak. Tastes more like a pinot gris than a chardonnay. Watery finish that doesn't last. Not much for the palate.Add winemaker's notes

Good wine for a responsible price. Has a buttery smooth taste and surprisingly better taste than a mondavi, simi, and a Kendal Jackson. I recommend.

Smooth and easy-drinking, this soft and buttery Chardonnay may call to mind bananas dipped in caramel. What’s not to like about that? Drink soon for optimum enjoyment.
Washington State14 Hands Chardonnay is a fresh, lively Chardonnay from Washington State. The inspiration for 14 Hands wines recalls a time when wild mustangs once freely roamed the hills of eastern Washington State. These small horses, measuring a scant 14 hands high - a "hand" being equivalent to a man's palm width and how horses were measured then - would travel down from the hills every day to drink from the mighty Columbia River. Fruit for this Chardonnay was sourced throughout Washington state, including the Horse Heaven Hills, Yakima Valley and other parts of the Columbia Valley. 22% of the wine was oak fermented, predominantly in neutral barrels. 14 Hands Chardonnay is medium-full in body with crisp acidity. "This Chardonnay displays aromas and flavors of fresh apple with subtle hints of vanilla and buttery caramel. On the palate, notes of sweet oak and spice give way to a soft, lingering finish." Keith Kenison, WinemakerEnjoy 14 Hands Chardonnay over the next 3-5 years with Chicken Kiev, lemon pepper salmon, seafood alfredo and cheeses.
