2011 Cold Creek Vineyard Chardonnay

Columbia Valley

Cold Creek vineyard Chardonnay is typified by concentration and intensity from the 40-year-old vines and warmth of the Washington vineyard site. Fermented in 100% French oak barrels, this Chardonnay is a decadent style with ripe fruit and a toasty character. The cooler 2011 vintage provided enhanced acidity with an elegant finish, resulting in a balanced and highly ageable Chardonnay.
