Duck Pond Chardonnay Wahluke Slope Duck Pond Cellars 2007

Winemaker's Notes:

Duck Pond Cellars is a family winery which owns and operates 340 acres of vineyards in northern Oregon (for Pinot Noir and Pinot Gris) and 520 in eastern Washington (for Chardonnay and Merlot). They are a remarkable success story having grown in one generation from farmers into the biggest winery in Oregon. The Chardonnay is from Washington’s Columbia Valley where hot, sunny days and cool nights bring peak ripeness without losing acidity in the grapes. A slightly lighter hand with the oak for this vintage (just 10% was barrel fermented and then aged in French and American oak) results in a wine with a little more zip and balance, where citrus fruit is complemented with a well judged proportion of smoky vanilla oak. Intriguingly the blend is 95% Chardonnay with 4% Semillon and 1% Gewurztraminer. It is rich with tropical fruit and lemon flavours and a little smokiness.

This wine won a Gold Medal at the Grand Harvest Awards 2009, and I bought a bottle last weekend at my local grocery on sale for under $10...and it was smooth, elegant, buttery and really deserved the award in my humble opinion.
