Wine Review: This light yellow colored Chardonnay from Washington opens with a mild lemon and light oak bouquet. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, balanced, and slightly creamy. The flavor profile is a light oak infused apple with a touch of mineral. The finish is dry and its oak notes linger. I would pair this wine with honey mustard marinated chicken off the grill. Enjoy – Ken

Winemaker Notes: The Canoe Ridge Estate Chardonnay is refined and elegant and we like to enhance that style in the cellar. This Chardonnay delivers fresh apple, pear and spice aromas and flavors. The finish is graceful with light spice notes, which are a result of the restrained French oak treatment.
