Milbrandt Vineyards 2016 Traditions Chardonnay, Columbia Valley, $13

By on June 25, 2018

Best Buy! Topped with a screwcap, labeled Columbia Valley and bargain priced, this wine labeled “Traditions” by Milbrandt Vineyards carries on a tradition of Washington Chardonnay for the past 40 years. Lime and Granny Smith apple notes lead to a refreshing palate of citrus, tart apple and a dab of pineapple that’s finished off with a lingering, juicy minerality. This earned a gold medal sixth annual Cascadia International Wine Competition.

Rating: Outstanding!

Production: 6,000 cases
