ICON by Waterbrook 2018 Chardonnay, Columbia Valley, $32

By on March 7, 2021

This tier from the cellar of John Freeman west of Walla Walla goes beyond a reserve program, and they aren’t sold outside of the tasting room near Lowden. This Chardonnay does take a reserve approach, but it stretches from tones of butterscotch and coconut to lemon, marzipan and a tropicality reminiscent of a piña colada. These ICON wines by John Freeman are limited to tasting room sales, and suggested pairings with this Chardonnay include pork loin, pasta salads with a cream sauce, chicken salad sandwiches and mild hard cheeses.
