Citrus and buttery nose, leading into a creamy palate with orange notes, and a lengthy finish with notes of lime. Good acidity that cuts through the oak.

This wine is the perfect sipper for me. The balance was perfect - nice crisp acidity and fruit flavors as well as a delightfully buttery body and creamy finish. Highly recommend it as an asperitif, perhaps a nice bath-time drinker.

Columbia Crest Chardonnay Grand Estates Columbia Valley 2008 750ML


External Review

This Chardonnay from Washington is a terrific marriage of fruit and French oak with a bit of minerality. It is perfectly balanced between the old super oaky- buttery style and the crisp stainless steel tank versions of the last few years. On the nose, pear, apple and butter lead to a delicate taste of tropical fruit and baking spices with a creamy vanilla finish. Pair this wine with lobster bisque and crusty French bread.

Ripe and generous, not heavy, but heady with spice-accented pear, honey and floral aromas and flavors, echoing nicely. Drink now.

The 2008 Chardonnay Horse Heaven Hills is a bit more serious. Forty percent was barrel-fermented in new oak, 30% in seasoned barrels with the balance in stainless steel. Like the Grand Estates, it was aged for 6andndash;9 months sur lie with weekly batonnage. It gives up aromas of buttered popcorn, pear, spiced apple, and mineral leading to a smooth-textured, ripe Chardonnay with very good volume and concentration. This well-balanced, lengthy effort should drink well for 2andndash;3 years.

Aromas of apple, pear and caramelized sugar carry through to the palate, the refined flavors of this Chardonnay end in a lingering finish that gracefully balances the fruit, and slight notes of butter. - Ray Einberger, Winemaker

Winemaker's Notes:

Score: N/A Tasting Notes: Whole-berry Chardonnay from select vineyards was pressed. The juice was held at 50 degrees in stainless steel tanks for two days allowing solids to settle. 40% of the clarified juice was barrel fermented in new American and French oak, and 30% in older oak barrels to create complexity and maintain the fruit integrity. 30% of the juice was fermented instainless steel to retain the minerality and fruit-forward, elegant characters unique to the Horse Heaven Hills region. All barrels were hand-stirred weekly for six to nine months. Website: Columbia Crest
