Columbia Crest Grand Estates Chardonnay Wine
The Grand Estates Chardonnay opens with bright fruit aromas of apple and pear which harmonize gracefully with signature notes of caramelized sugar and butterscotch. Ripe fruit flavors are bolstered by lively acidity, yet balanced deftly with a subtle creaminess. The striking combination of rich flavors, ample body and refreshing finish make this wine a natural pairing for a wide array of foods. Match with everything from lobster, crab cakes or scallops in a cream sauce to roast chicken, grilled pork chops or a Nicoise salad.
The vineyard sites are located on the Wahluke Slope, offering aromatics, texture and complexity; the Yakima Valley, which add flavor and fruitiness; and the Horse Heaven Hills, which contribute balance and body to the finished wine.
