A really good mild and light blend.
This 2009 2 Vines Chard has green apple notes mostly but also some pear and citrus. The amount of fruit is on the light side for this simple wine. My rating--16.5
Creamy and vanilla flavors on the nose and palate. Nice finish. Great value!
This is such a spectacular chardonnay! Well balanced tropical fruits with just the right oak and a nice creamy quality but not overly so. Delightful and well worth the price. It's a great value!!
External Reviews for Columbia Crest H3 Horse Heaven Hills les Chevaux
Polished, spicy and expressive, offering spicy, toasty overtones that push against the lemon curd and apple flavors, lingering enticingly, with a hint of smoke. Drink now through 2016.
For lovers of lush, buttery Chardonnay, this is the one to seek out. Generously toasty barrel flavors complement spicy pineapple fruit. It’s forward, full-bodied and ready to drink now.
The 2009 Chardonnay Horse Heaven Hills (a mere 36,000 cases) was 75% barrel-fermented with 75% of the wine going through malolactic fermentation. It was aged sur lie in barrel for 9 months with batonnage. Toasty tropical aromas lead to a spicy, savory, well-balanced, lengthy Chardonnay that is an excellent value meant for drinking over the next 2–3 years.
From the winery, 'Intense aromas of apple and pear lead into hints of melon and creamy butter on the palate in this refined Chardonnay. The lingering finish is a lush balance of wood, carmelized sugar, and fruit.'
A detailed and refined white, layering its pear, tobacco, clotted cream and spice characters with finesse. The flavors play out gracefully. Deft finish. Drink now through 2015.
If you have tried the H3 Cabernet and Merlot, this wine is for you. A new release with characteristics similar to other H3 productions.
Soft, with a spicy edge to the grapefruit and cream flavors. Drink now.
This lighter style Chardonnay is fresh and vibrant with bright apple and pear aromas coupled with a hint of coconut. Flavors of orchard fruits are accented by nuances of citrus and toasty oak, ending with a juicy, crisp finish. Intended for immediate enjoyment, this Chardonnay captures the varietal intensity indicative of wines from Washington State.
