Chris Daniel Winery 2016 Chardonnay, Columbia Valley, $18

By on March 6, 2019

If you try to classify this Chardonnay, it’s probably more Sonoma County style than Chablis, thanks to a rich mouth feel loaded with pretty tropical fruit, including starfruit, Asian pear, juicy ripe pear on the finish, backed by steely acidity through the impressive finish. This won a gold medal at last year’s judging for the Wenatchee World.

Rating: Outstanding!

Production: 100 cases
