By on November 19, 2016

gordon-estate-estate-chardonnay-2015-bottleThis vintage marked the 30th anniversary of the Gordon brothers’ first wine produced from their estate overlooking the Snake River, and it features a blend of fruit and barrel notes, starting with aromas of Spanish almond, butter and toast that also include caramel apple, grapefruit pith and lemon pepper. There’s less influence of oak on the acid-driven palate, which brings a juicy profile of Bosc pear and Granny Smith apple, backed by citrusy acidity. Try with Duck Tacos at the Gordon Estate Wine Bar in Pasco’s Broadmoor Park.
