Winemaker's Notes:

96% Chardonnay, 4% Viognier

Distinctive in style and finely orchestrated, this Chardonnay is well respected as a timeless standard within the history of Waterbrook. It is bright and luminescent with crisp green apple and butterscotch, finishing with a flourish of lemon and confident acidity.

About Waterbrook:

Waterbrook Winery was founded in 1984 by Eric and Janet Rindal and is located in Washington State's lovely Walla Walla Valley. The name was chosen to complement the translation from Nez Perce Indian dialect for the name Walla Walla, meaning "running water." Production has slowly increased to over 35,000 cases annually.
