Bergevin Lane Chardonnay Wahluke Slope Linen 2009

Member Review by terroir360:

Scoring an 85 point “Best Buy” from the Wine Enthusiast this easy-drinking wine originated at the Wahluke Slope in Central Washington state. One of the warmest grape-growing climates in the state it is best-known for producing the Syrah, Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon that Washington earned its wine chops on. The 2009 vintage was a cool one, allowing the grapes to ripen slowly without high sugar levels, giving this wine hints of Honeycrisp apple and a balanced minerality. Pairing suggestions include artichoke and spinach dips, dishes with lots of butter and garlic, and light pastas. Founded in 2002 Bergevin Lane has become one of the larger wineries in Walla Walla, producing about 11,000 cases annually. Owners Annette Bergevin and Amber Lane bring the strengths of their business backgrounds to assist in crafting playful, yet complex, wines. Together with winemaker Dave Harvey, they produce wines which span the spectrum from well-priced “everyday drinkers” to sophisticated small-lot releases perfect for cellaring.
