Jones of Washington 2018 Estate Vineyards Chardonnay, Wahluke Slope, $14

By on November 19, 2019

Best Buy! Victor Palencia, who grew up in Prosser, Wash., continues to prove that he’s one of the leading Chardonnay producers in the Pacific Northwest. His winemaking talents and Jones family fruit combined to earn this fresh 2018 release best of class at the Invite. This opens with classic aromas of apple and lemon/lime en route to delivering a clean mouthful of bright lemon, lime and green apple flavors that include a nip of apple peel in its juicy, bright finish. Earlier in the year, the Jones of Washington 2017 Reserve Chardonnay was voted as the best white wine of the Cascadia International Wine Competition.
