Luke Ancient Lakes Columbia Valley Chardonnay 2019
|Region||United States, Washington, Columbia Valley|
All of the fruit for this wine comes from Evergreen Vineyard. Aged in third-fill barrels and neutral oak with 50% malolactic fermentation, the aromas of apple, pumpkin and talc are plentiful. The palate is bright and fresh, with lemony flavors. It brings texture and tension.
Very pale, bright yellow. Fruit-driven aromas of white peach, nectarine and honeydew complicated by leesy and spicy nuances. Supple, pure and classically dry, offering subtle richness of texture and breadth. As much melon and lemon curd as white stone fruits on the palate. A nice showing but doesn't have the length for 90 points. And best suited for fairly early drinking.
