Washington Hills Winery 2016 Chardonnay, Washington, $10

By on July 7, 2018

Best Buy! Precept’s director of winemaking, Hal Landvoigt, continues to show some flair in his work with the consumer-focused Washington Hills brand, which observes its 30th anniversary in 2018. He used lots from four distinct growing regions — high-elevation Frenchman Hills in the proposed Royal Slope, Goose Ridge in the proposed Goose Gap, Wallula in the Horse Heaven Hills and Willow Crest in the Yakima Valley. It’s very lightly oaked as Asian pear, lemon and Golden Delicious apple aromas lead to flavors of Bosc pear, pineapple, vanilla and lemon oil. Pleasing weight and enjoyable acidity make this an easy drink. These wines are available through Total Wines & More.
