/ Knudsen Vineyards 2014 Chardonnay
SKU: KN14CH6P

The Knudsen Vineyards 2014 Chardonnay exhibits a lovely pale straw color in the glass, possesses a light citrus, green apple and vanilla aroma, a flinty, cool mouthfeel and delivers a lingering and elegant finish. This wine has been characterized by some as presenting a flavor and drinkability profile surprisingly similar to the great wine of Chablis. We are enthusiastic about our energetic 2014 Chardonnay.

Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
Crisp, clean and tingly tart. Discover layers of complexity with every sip - zippy lemon zest, quince paste, orange blossom and almond cookies - with a backbone of stony minerality.
Awards
SavorNW Wine Competition Gold Medal - March, 2016
Vineyard Notes
Produced from vines planted in 1995 in Block 9, French Dijon clones 95 and 76, and in Block 10, French Dijon clone 76. Elevation ranges from 655 - 760 ft.
Production Notes
Alcohol content is 13.5% by volume. Barrel fermented for 12 months, predominantly in older French oak barrels, with 20% new French oak.
Food Pairing Notes
This versatile food wine will be a pleasure to serve with a variety of menu options. Superb with salty soft cheese, with main courses like halibut, chicken with rosemary, sautéed sea scallops with herbed cream sauce, or with side dishes like chanterelles in garlic, butter and sea salt.
Production
260 cases
Other Notes
This is our second Knudsen Vineyards Chardonnay since our return to winemaking in 2012. We honor the pioneering spirit of our parents, Cal and Julia Lee Knudsen, and celebrate 45 years of viticultural innovation at Knudsen Vineyards.
