Varietal Content: 92% Chardonnay, 5% Pinot Gris, 3% Select White VarietiesThis Chardonnay was fermented in stainless steel tanks at cool temperatures around 58b0F to preserve the fruity esters. We use a mix of hand-selected yeast strains to enhance the complexity of the citrus and tropical fruit aromas. Following primary fermentation, this Chardonnay was left on fine lees for nine months until bottling to create an enriched mouthfeel and texture with a supple finish.Tasting NotesColumbia Winery Chardonnay offers bright aromas of pear, apple and hints of tropical fruits that extend to the palate. A balanced acidity and integrated sweet vanilla oak notes create an elegant Chardonnay that is distinctly Northwest. We love this wine with Dungeness crab or Penn Cove mussels.
For more than 50 years, Columbia Winery has taken a progressive approach to winemaking. Our winery was founded in 1962 by a visionary group of 10 friends, six of whom were University of Washington professors, who realized the potential of growing wine in Washington State, as it has the same latitude as Europe's best winegrowing regions.In 1979, Master of Wine David Lake was named head winemaker and furthered the progressive spirit that began with their founders. Under Lake, Columbia Winery produced the first series of vineyard-designate wines and the first Pinot Gris, Syrah and Cabernet Franc wines in Washington.Today, this innovation continues through a talented and creative winemaking team, led by Winemaker Sean Hails. Using grapes selected from south-facing slopes in top quality regions, the Columbia winemaking team crafts a portfolio of distinct, food-friendly wines with fruit-driven flavors and a firm acidity.
