2017 CHARDONNAY, YAKIMA VALLEY, WA (Benefit)
Extremely pale silvery yellow in the glass, our 2017 Yakima Valley Chardonnay is as bright on the palate as it is to the eye. Offering the nose ample aromas of stone fruit, melon, and floral notes, the palate recognizes all that the nose does, with additional flavors of pineapple and crisp citrus. This is an appealing and refreshing Chardonnay that would be delightful in the glass while enjoying a warm summer evening on the porch. This Chardonnay pairs beautifully with seafood and shellfish, chicken or shrimp kabobs with veggies on the grill, and a wide variety of soft cheeses, such as Brie and Dalice de Bourgogne. This Chardonnay practically begs to be poured alongside a New England clam bake.
