Winemaker Notes :

Fermented only in stainless steel, the Grand Estates Unoaked Chardonnay is a light-bodied wine that reveals a pure expression of the varietal. The wine reveals aromas of lemon seed, green mangoes and orange blossoms. On the palate, layers of citrus fruit flavors combine with lively acidity, creating a refreshing style of Chardonnay.

Wine AdvocateA smoking value, the 2012 Chardonnay Grand Estates Unoaked gives up a crisp, clean feel, with lime, citrus blossom, green herbs and lively mineral qualities all coming together nicely in the glass. Medium-bodied, fresh and focused, it's delicious stuff to enjoy over the coming 2-3 years.

Wine EnthusiastThis is a new offering for Columbia Crest's Grand Estates lineup. Fresh fruit flavors emphasize lemon, lime and pineapple, backed with moderate acidity. A nice spicy lift informs the finish. Light and lively.
