Winemaker Notes

The 1999 Chardonnay stands up and dares the wine consumer not to notice it. The rich mango aroma and viscous finish tease the palate like no other Canoe Ridge Vineyard Chardonnay ever has. The usual flavors are all accounted for, honeysuckle, white peach, orange blossoms, freshly sliced pineapple and mineral. The tropical yum factor is an added plus to this vintage. As the vines are maturing, we are learning how to best accentuate the positive flavors of our Chardonnay. Barrel fermentation in mostly French oak, and 85 percent malolactic fermentation bring spice and richness to an abundance of fruit.

I recommend trying this wine with the summer bounty of fresh fish. Have a fish fry of orange roughy, sea bass, halibut, sturgeon, cod, or even shark. I caught a Dog Fish shark when I was a youngster and I'm pretty sure Chardonnay would have helped make it taste better. Try it with homemade pasta with a cream sauce. It also goes well with a mixture of country cheeses and fruit. I am sure Jake and Elwood would agree this wine screams for "Gimme Some Lovin" from The Best of the Blues Brothers. REM's Green CD would also go well. "Stand" and "Orange Crush" are great summertime toe tappers. -John Abbott ,Winemaker

Canoe Ridge, Washington
Canoe Ridge Hayden Mouat - Winemaker Winery Image

Canoe Ridge Vineyard is one of Washington State’s most recognized wineries, with its namesake vineyard established in 1989 in the Horse Heaven Hills AVA. Varieties are focused on Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon and Chardonnay. The name comes from a ridge by the vineyard located along the mid-Columbia River, neat the town of Paterson. The famed explorers Lewis and Clark named this crest of land as they journeyed down Columbia River in 1805. From the river, the adventurers thought the ridge resembled an overturned canoe. The Walla-Walla based winery marked its 20th anniversary in 2014.  

Bone-dry deserts, upriver winds from the Columbia River and long sunny days make the perfect conditions for growing wine grapes in the Horse Heaven Hills. Fine tannins and deep concentrates fruit flavors are characteristics that put our region on the map- synonymous with some of the most acclaimed wines in the Northwest.
