Jones of Washington 2017 Reserve Chardonnay, Columbia Valley, $30

By on May 27, 2019

Victor Palencia, who received Wine Press Northwest magazine’s award for the 2019 Pacific Northwest Winery of the Year, helped Jones of Washington earn Washington Winery of the Year honors in 2012. The collaboration continues, and the Jones family has this stunning young reserve Chardonnay that emerged as the best white wine of the 2019 Cascadia International Wine Competition. There are flashes of oak behind the apple, pineapple and lime in its aromas and flavors. If you’re a Chardonnay sipper, it’s perfect for a summer evening on the deck and would pair well with light dishes with a cream sauce such as Chicken Alfredo or even Spaghetti Carbonara with slightly crisped and crumbled prosciutto and topped with freshly grated Parmesan.
