House Wine 2011 Chardonnay, Columbia Valley, $10

By on August 2, 2013

House Wine is owned by Precept Wine in Seattle.Best Buy! Chardonnay is the No. 1 wine grape in Washington, though that doesn’t always mean it’s great. Well, this is the exception. This Precept Wine label that was originally created by the indomitable Charles Smith of Walla Walla is known for its great prices. But this also delivers in the glass as one of the best Chardonnays we’ve tasted recently. It opens with aromas of citrus, pear, mango and clarified butter, followed by flavors of rich butterscotch, nectarine and pineapple, all with just a whisper of oak mingling in the background.

Rating: Outstanding!

Production: 2,500 cases

Alcohol: 13.5%
