Wine Review: This golden colored Chardonnay opens with a baked apple and ripe pear bouquet with a hint of cantaloupe. On the palate, this wine is full bodied with medium plus acidity. The mouthfeel is balanced, rich and generous. The flavor profile is pear, banana, and chalky minerality blend with notes of oak and honeydew melon. I also detected some hints of grilled pineapple in the aftertaste. The finish is dry, and its flavors are persistent. This Chard would pair well with a baked Alaskan halibut Olympia in a creamy wine-caper sauce. Enjoy – Ken

Winemaker Notes: The poised and graceful 2020 East Block Chardonnay captures the luscious ripe flavors and textures of a perfect summer's day. Aromas of rich, honeyed, crystalized ginger are balanced by grassier notes of fresh hay, with a texture so complete that it creates an indelible memory. Enjoy effortless drinking now and a 20-year aging potential. The “East Block” pairs well with meaty fish in beurre blanc sauce or with pike quenelles.
