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.'
