Intense aromas and deep flavors of ripe apple intermingle with notes of hazelnut spice, subtle vanilla and butterscotch. The vibrant ripe apple, pear and citrus flavors are seamlessly integrated with a spicy character achieved by barrel fermentation in French oak. The wine's lush texture is complemented by a smooth, silky finish.

My goal with the Columbia Valley Chardonnay is to make a pleasurable, food-friendly Chardonnay. This is a fresh, soft style of Chardonnay with bright apple and sweet citrus fruit character and subtle spice and oak nuances. We blend Chardonnay grapes from vineyards all over Washington's Columbia Valley to make this a complex, interesting wine. The sur lie aging gives it an appealing softness. - Bob Bertheau, Head Winemaker

This bears apple and pear flavors that are set amidst buttery, toasty accents. It’s smooth and easy to drink, and the mouthfeel has a certain oiliness.

Winemaker's Notes:

• The Columbia Valley blend is made from numerous vineyard lots resulting in a complex, layered Chardonnay. • Malolactic fermentation follows yeast fermentation for added richness and complexity. • 13% tank fermented Chardonnay was added to the blend to make a fresh, friendly style of Chardonnay. • Sur lie aged for more than seven months in a mix of French and American oak barrels (13% new) with regular stirring to soften the wine and integrate fruit and oak fl avors.
