Winemaker's Notes:

Luring aromatics of toasted almonds and buttery notes swirl among tropical fruit aromas. The creamy palate is layered with apple tart and pineapple upside down cake. This satisfying Chardonnay leaves lingering banana on the finish and balanced acidity.

98% Chardonnay, 2% Viognier

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.
