Maryhill Winery 2019 Proprietor’s Reserve Chardonnay, Columbia Valley, $35

By on January 26, 2022

Tudor Hills Vineyard, a breadbasket in the Yakima Valley for Richard Batchelor, sets the stage for this reserve Chardonnay. A 10-month barrel program in 40% new French oak that includes sur lie aging accounts for the pleasing presentation of oak that merely accents the fruit-filled profile of starfruit, white peach, Golden Delicious apple and Asian pear. Great weight and some minerality add up to a Platinum, the second in three years for Maryhill. Award: Cascadia International (gold).

Rating: Platinum, 93 points

Production: 973 cases
