H3 Horse Heaven Hills les Chevaux 2010

Winemaker's Notes:

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.

Decent mid-range chardonnay with some oak and subtle spice. Somewhat buttery with the oak over-riding the fruit.

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.

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.

If you have tried the H3 Cabernet and Merlot, this wine is for you. A new release with characteristics similar to other H3 productions.
