Wine Review–Two Vines Chardonnay 2005Posted in : Chardonnay, White Wine on by : The Gourmez
Two Vines Chardonnay Washington State 2005 Columbia-Crest
The oak is strong in this one. And it’s an excellent oak that imparts smokiness to the wine and a touch of sweetness. It has a very clean minerality, by which I mean that there is a taste of wet pebbles that’s refreshing, not too bitter or out of place. I also taste green pear with the skin on, which is the least of the flavors but a welcome splash of fruit. This might be my ideal sipping wine for a hot summer evening.
