Winemaker's Notes:

Displays an inviting mix of citrus and creamy tropical fruit aromas. Offers layer upon layer of ripe apple, vanilla and orange flavors. Richly textured with bright, snappy acidity. This stylish, sunny Chardonnay pairs well with poultry and seafood.

About Barnard Griffin Winery:

Barnard Griffin Winery was established in 1983 by Winemaker Rob Griffin and his wife, Deborah Barnard. Rob saw the opportunity to make great wine in Washington and moved north in 1977. Pleased with his move to Washington, he says "The northern latitude of Washington and the ideally drained sandy soils of the Columbia Valley make it possible to produce deeply concentrated wines of pronounced character."
