Winemaker's Notes:

Flavors of crisp green apple, pear, tropical fruit and spice are enhanced by subtle notes of vanilla and toast.

This Chardonnay is nice as an aperitif, as well as a great food wine. Try serving it with soft creamy cheeses, fish, chicken dishes and other light fare.

Blend: 93% Chardonnay, 4.5% Semillon, 1.5% Pinot Gris, 0.5% Viognier, 0.5% Chenin Blanc

About Covey Run:

Since the release of the 1982 vintage, Covey Run has crafted high quality, price worthy wines from Washington’s Columbia River Valley, wines that have been embraced by consumers and journalists alike earning over 20 Wine Spectator Best Values awards. Led by winemaker Kate Michaud, Covey Run's portfolio includes delicious wines for every occasion, from stylish entertaining, to casual gatherings and picnics with family and friends.

Covey Run wines benefit from the long, sunny days and cool nights of eastern Washington vineyards. The whites are distinguished by crisp acidity and fresh fruit flavors, while the reds are aged in oak that never masks, but rather complements, the bold fruit flavors.
