Waterbrook Chardonnay Columbia Valley 2010
At the right temperature this wine has a nose of apples and pears like most other Chardonnays. It has a mineralistic finish that would pare well with spicier dishes but would not be good with salmon. The finish is smooth, it is just more on the stainless steel side than the oak and butter side.

I lfind myself enjoying this Washington State Chardonnay for what it is not. It has citrus notes that are clean and lemony without being overbearing as in many Savignon Blancs. Floral notes are soft, as is the oak. Try this if you love Chardonnay but are tired of overbearing California labels. I am rating it higher than many of its reviews, but have found it to be very enjoyable with lighter dishes such as rotisserie chicken.

External Reviews for Waterbrook Chardonnay Columbia Valley
Fragrant pineapple and mango aromas marry with hints of buttery notes. The rich mouthfeel is filled with dried apricots, apple and lingering toast notes on the finish.
Buttery aromatics layered with Golden Delicious apples unfold into fresh flavors of winter pear and honeydew melon. Finishes with light toasty notes and crisp acidity.

The 2009 Chardonnay (at 10,000+ cases the second largest production) was 69% barrel-fermented and 21% aged in new oak. Toasty butterscotch, pear, apple, and tropical aromas and flavors make for an excellent value in Chardonnay.

Bright yellow straw cast. Moderately full-bodied. Full acidity. Moderately extracted. Mildly oaked. Brown spices, citrus zest. Features a firm core of racy citrus flavors and a spicy oak accent. Firm and flavorful through the finish. Should open further in the near term.
The 2006 Chardonnay spent time in 24% new French oak with 30% of the wine going through malolactic fermentation. It is a serious Chardonnay at a bargain price.
