Natalie's Score: 89/100

A lovely, smooth, creamy coconut mouthfeel on this Washington Chardonnay. Look for tropical fruit, buttered apple, peach and butterscotch flavours luxuriously creamy and lingering on the palate attributed to nine months of lees-ageing. Food friendly acidity to pair with a creamy butternut squash or mushroom risotto. The Columbia Valley has varied and rich soil types with just as varied mesoclimates giving expression and complexity to their wines.

Chardonnay food pairings: roast chicken, buttered lobster rolls, sautéed halibut steaks, grilled pork chops.

Remarkable Roast Chicken Wine

Reviews and Ratings

From the Columbia Valley wine region, Columbia Winery 2017 Chardonnay is a full-bodied, mouth-filling Chard with butterscotch, ripe peach, pear, coconut, vanilla and toasty oak spice flavours creamy and finishing long on the palate. Great value under $20. Pair with roast chicken. - Community Wine Reviews
