Corvidae Wine Co. 2013 Mirth Chardonnay, Columbia Valley, $10

By on January 23, 2015

Corvidae Wine Co.-Mirth Chardonnay-Columbia Valley-2013-BottleBest Buy! The O’Reilly and Wolff families put down roots in the west end of the Yakima Valley starting with this vintage, and this second label for renowned Owen Roe signals a delicious debut with Chardonnay. Its fruit-forward style offers a nose of fresh citrus, pineapple and mint, followed by bright flavors of Granny Smith apple, lime and lemon juice. Alcohol, sugar and acidity are nicely balanced, and the citrus pith finish plays well into suggested pairings such as chanterelle herb frittata, lemon roasted chicken or a smoked salmon salad with mango and avocado.

Rating: Outstanding!

Production: 9,898 cases

Alcohol: 13%
