Technical Data * Total acidity: 0.53 g/100ml * pH: 3.57 * Alcohol: 13.8%
At Columbia Crest we pride ourselves on delivering handcrafted, superior-quality small-lot wines, as well as affordable everyday Washington wines. Our first release in 1984 started a tradition that has established us as one of America’s most popular and fast-growing wineries.
A little too synthetic tasting from the ML process. Not a crazy buttery oaky California wine but not subtle enough.
External Reviews for Columbia Crest 2 Vine Chard
Terrific fruit character in a straightforward Chardonnay. An easy-drinking white wine you'll want to keep around by the case.
From the winery, 'The Two Vines Chardonnay offers fruit-forward apple and pear aromas with a hint of lemon citrus leading into a balanced crispness and creaminess on the palate. The lingering finish is of lush fruit. A lighter style designed for immediate enjoyment, this Chardonnay perfectly captures the varietal intensity indicative of Columbia Valley wines.'
