Benson Vineyards Estate Winery 2017 Chardonnay, Lake Chelan, $21

By on February 16, 2019

This picturesque Vineyard and winery on the north shore of Lake Chelan has crafted a beautiful Chardonnay that reveals just a sensual kiss of oak that leaves the impression of butterscotch candy, followed by notes of lemon, lime, peach and honeydew melon. It’s all backed by impressive acidity, giving way to a lingering finish. This won a gold medal in the 2018 Wenatchee wine competition.
