Winemaker's Notes:

Light lemon gold in color; aromas of ripe pear and creamy vanilla. On the palate, flavors of apple and pear with rich, creamy vanilla and a soft butter touch on the medium long finish.

Our 2009 Columbia Valley Chardonnay is the perfect accompaniment to linguini with shrimp and parmesan cheese, or a cheese platter with rich Cheddar, Gruyere, Fontina and Brie with dried fruit.

About Columbia Winery:

Columbia Winery was the first premium winery in Washington and the first in the state to produce vineyard-designate wines. Columbia Winery was founded in 1962 by ten friends, six of whom were University of Washington professors. Originally known as Associated Vintners, the group was united in the belief that vines could survive the harsh Washington winters and that fine wine could be made in Washington state.

Having worked alongside founding winemaker and Master of Wine, David Lake, Kerry Norton now oversees the Columbia Winery winemaking, handcrafting Riesling, Chardonnay, Cabernet Sauvignon and Syrah sourced from the Columbia and Yakima Valleys.
