Producer Wine Name Varietal Reviewer Rating Vintage Cost
Columbia Winery    Chardonnay Mike Taylor Very good  2001  $14.00
An enjoyable weekday Chardonnay that matches well with several food dishes. It is a bright straw yellow with aromas of apple and crisp citrus. The flavors are delicate and the body lean. The wine undergoes malolactic fermentation but the ever present zesty acidity provides a good clean finish or works well as a contrast pairing with rich food. The wine spent 8 months in oak however the influence seems slight which is nice when looking for a non buttery Chardonnay.
