Boomtown 2011 Chardonnay, Washington State, $16

By on July 23, 2013

boomtown-chardonnay-bottleThis collaboration between Dusted Valley Vintners in Walla Walla and the Wahluke Wine Co., continue to produce consistently delicious Chardonnay. It starts with freshly sliced lemon and just-pressed apple cider, backed by pineapple and slate notes. The drink is fruit-forward and food-friendly with fleshy apple and pear flavors on the entry, backed by lemon juice and some pith, a touch of minerality and backed by lime. It’s easy to get into with its screwcap, but it won’t be as easy to find with production limited compared with previous vintages.

Rating: Excellent

Production: 750 cases

Alcohol: 13.7%
