AntoLin Cellars 2011 Chardonnay, Columbia Valley, $19
This boutique winery based in Yakima, Wash., is operated by Tony and Linda Haralson, two longtime Washington wine lovers who planted grapes and opened their own winery. The winery name is a combination of their first names – Anthony and Linda. This luscious Chardonnay opens with tropical notes, pineapple and a whiff of oak. On the palate, its pineapple elements take the lead, backed by sweet apple flavors, a squeeze of lemon acidity and a finish that displays a hint of caramel from oak aging. This won a gold medal at the recent Great Northwest Wine Competition.
Note: This wine will be released this month.
Production: 190 cases
