Boomtown by Dusted Valley 2015 Chardonnay, Columbia Valley, $19

By on April 1, 2017

This Walla Walla Valley winery continues to provide quality and affordability within its Boomtown brand, a 20,000-case collaboration with the Wahluke Wine Co. Neutral barrel fermentation made up 59% of the program, which included full ML and aging on the lees for four months. The rest is pure steel, and that combination develops aromas of starfruit, pineapple and Key Lime with hints of powdered sugar and crushed hazelnuts. On the palate, it is balanced, nutty and fruity with Bosc pear, dried apricot and green banana flavors. For the second straight vintage, this Chardonnay has earned our top rating. Suggested pairings include Mussels and Spanish Chorizo, a recipe from Savor chef Janis Frey.

Production: 2,400 cases
