    Winemaker's Notes:

    My goal with the Columbia Valley Chardonnay is to make it a pleasurable, food-friendly Chardonnay. This is a fresh, soft style of Chardonnay with bright sweet citrus fruit character and subtle spice and oak nuances. We blend Chardonnay grapes from vineyards all over Washington's Columbia Valley to make this a complex, interesting wine. The sur lie aging gives it an appealing softness.

    Pair with crab, poultry, salmon and scallops.

    Critical Acclaim:

    Bright and jazzy, with pretty pineapple, grapefruit, elderflower and spice flavors that linger on the finish without excess weight. This just floats on for a while. Drink now through 2012.

    Light oak, first sip had some butter to it, some baking spices; finish has notes of citrus. A light and enjoyable summer Chard and a great value!

    This a terrific wine, especially with the price. We paired it with grilled swordfish and a tomatoe and avocado salad--excellent. I'm saving the second bottle for an equally good meal.

    It doesn't have impressive complexity, but it's rather light and pleasant. Is good for a casual summer drink. Ordering another one to give it more of a tasting. Four star for its price--one of the cheapest Chardonnays I can find. About 88 points.
