Abeja Chardonnay Washington 2008

Winemaker's Notes:

92 points Wine Enthusiast: Even in a high acid vintage such as 2008, this is rich, almost oily, a full-throttle wine well-endowed with full-bodied fruit flavor. Though 50% new oak is used, the barrels are bigger (92 gallons instead of 55) which reduces the toastiness. A wine that will not disappoint fans of the John Abbott/Abeja style. (Mar 2010)

Spanish for bee, name is pronounced 'ah-BAY-ha'. Name is chosen for its simple beauty and its reminder of times past when farming implied a respect for the environment and close connection to the earth. Abeja is located on a century olad farmstead in the breathtaking foothills of the Blue Mountains. Once seriously dilapidated, all of the original farm buildings have been carefully restored with an emphasis on craftsmanship and longevity. Creative use of salvaged materials adds interest and sets the stage for renewed purpose in these old buildings, which now house our winery and our guests. Read less
Suggested Recipe Pairing presented by
Coconut Rice Sweet Potato Cheesecake

RiceSelect's creamy Arborio gets blended with sweet potato, coconut milk and vanilla to create this decadent cheesecake. Pairs well with Saunternes; a white dessert wine that has hints of coconut from aging in oak barrels.
