Owner Bob Sage gets credit for crafting this superb Chardonnay, using grapes from the cool Ancient Lakes region. It opens with aromas that include a whisper of smokiness and flavors of pear, nectarine and fresh apple, all backed by zippy acidity and a hint of complex spiciness in the finish. This won a gold medal at the 2018 Wenatchee wine competition.
