2011 Chateau Ste Michelle Cold Creek Chardonnay

Chateau-Ste-Michelle-Cold-Creek-ChardonnayThis 2011 Columbia Valley chardonnay has fruit forward flavors and plenty of natural acid. The growing season started a week late in blooming, but caught up as the perfect ripening weather lasted through September. The weather was not too hot, which allowed grapes to retain their natural acidity.

From the winemaker – “Cold Creek Chardonnay is typified by concentration and intensity from the 40-year-old vines and warmth of the site. This Chardonnay is a decadent style with ripe fruit and a toasty character. The cooler 2011 vintage in Washington provided enhanced acidity with an elegant finish.”

Great with seafood risotto, salmon, veal.

2012 Beringer Napa Valley Chardonnay

Beringer-Napa-Valley-ChardonnayBeringer’s Napa Valley Chardonnay is a vibrant expression of this beautiful varietal and the depth and complexity of flavor it can exhibit. Winemaker Laurie Hook chooses complementary lots from AVAs in the cool southern end of the valley to craft a wine that is the quintessential expression of Napa Valley terroir. Beringer’s Chardonnay vineyards span several sub-appellations in southern Napa Valley, where fog from the San Pablo Bay works its way north most afternoons during the growing season, cooling the vineyards and allowing for a longer maturation period. The majority of the blend comes from our Big Ranch and Yountville vineyards, located on the valley floor. These vineyards produce Chardonnays with fine fruit flavors and crisp natural acidity.

From the winemaker – “Refreshing, crisp citrus notes accentuate this lively Chardonnay. A medium, rounded mouthfeel is highlighted with flavors of lemon meringue and a pleasing acidity.”

2013 Hess Select Chardonnay

Hess-Select-ChardonnayThis vintage will be remembered for its long, cool growing season and the absence of excessive heat events, which allowed for ripe flavors to develop on the vine without excessive sugar accumulation. The resulting wines show an elegant balance of fruit and acidity with lower alcohol.

From the winemaker – “Aromas of pear and citrus, highlighting lemon and lime, are followed on the  palate with pineapple and tropical fruit flavors. Medium bodied and refreshing,  a subtle oak toast balances acidity, resulting in a wine crafted in a modern, fruit-forward  style, wonderful to enjoy on its own as an apéritif, or with a wide array of  dishes across many cuisines.”

This wine’s natural acidity complements tangy, spicy foods and shows well with the richness of creamier dishes. Enjoy with Asian chicken salad, grilled tuna with melted anchovy butter and lemon, or a creamy pasta dish with Portobello mushrooms.
