2016 Readers Chardonnay
This Columbia Valley Chardonnay from Bookwalter Winery is a straight forward, fun sipping wine that presents lemon, pear, dried grasses and hints of mineral throughout the nose. It's not overly aromatic, but the flavors are the stars here. The blending of Viognier helps make this sweet and bright. Flavors of candied lemon, pear and honey on the tongue and all the way through the finish. Although I taste and drink most of my white wines at room temperature, I think this wine would be incredibly refreshing served very cool and with oysters on the half shell or with a cobb salad. For the price point, it would be easy to have 2 or 3 bottles around all of the time. This wine is 76% Chardonnay and 24% Viognier.
