2011 Buty Chardonnay, Conner Lee Vineyard, Columbia Valley, Washington

Medium straw color with hints of green. Crisp, cool-climate aromatics of green apple, lemon and flowers are complemented by mild toast and lees notes. Imagine a fine Champagne as a still table wine. The fruit sweetens up in the mouth. Coupled with a high natural acidity, the wine has a refreshing sweet-tart juiciness. The oak shadings are in the background, providing some roundness in texture and toast notes. A seamless, complete wine. Enjoy as an aperitif, or serve with roasted lemon chicken.
MSRP: $40 (May 2013)
