Chardonnay - Conner Lee Vineyard

Columbia Valley, 2013

19/20 points

Review of Washington Wines, April 2015
This Chardonnay possesses a brilliant gold color and lovely aromas of Asian pear-apple, white peach, grapefruit, peach blossoms, vanillin (from barrel fermentation) and wafts of white incense. On the palate, the white fruit compote flavors are lavish, yet precise, with notes of peach stones, pear skin, grape extracts and Radar Hill alluvial minerals. The wine then reveals sensations of poire William and péche liqueurs, laid on a creamy textured, oak laced back palate (from full malolactic and frequent battonage) that is followed by a lingering, persistently minerally finish. 19/20 points. — Rand Sealey
