The Canoe Ridge Estate Chardonnay is refined and elegant and Chateau Ste. Michelle likes to enhance that style in the cellar. This Chardonnay delivers crisp apple and white grapefruit aromas and flavors with a clean, refreshing finish. The wine is aged in restrained, lighter French oak barrels to maintain the fresh style of this Chardonnay. This is a crisp, fresh food wine.
Mild apricot aromas. Juicy, plump and fullbodied, with apricot and lime fruit. It's given vibrancy and length by a good acidic backbone.
The 2009 Canoe Ridge Estate Chardonnay was partially native yeast-fermented followed by 9 months sur lie in 31% new French oak. It offers up toasty pear and spiced apple aromas leading to a round, concentrated, spicy Chardonnay whose oak is well integrated. Drink this excellent value over the next 3-4 years.
