About This Wine:
The primary flavor impressions of Knoll Haven Winery’s 2017 Chardonnay are apple-related. A coincidence? We’d like to reply, “We think not!” But, in truth, it’s pure coincidence that apple-related flavors are so prominent in this wine.
Geologists believe that the Columbia Valley’s gently undulating open land is the remains of an ancient volcano. The valley is separated from Seattle’s maritime climate by the Cascade Mountains, and receives only six to eight inches of rain per year. All told, the vast valley comprises about a third of the state, providing numerous microclimates for successful grape growing.
Knoll Haven tapped a handful of those microclimates for the grapes used to craft its 2017 Chardonnay, a wine that exudes impressions of yellow apples, red apples, apple pie and even candy apple. A glass doesn’t count as a fruit serving, but it tastes like it should.
