Two Vines Winery Chardonnay 2012, Washington State 

My Rating 82 Points.   

Price $8.

 

Golden in color with a yellow tint.

On the nose, red apples, oak, citrus, vanilla, light rotten fruits, pears, spices and white paper.

Medium to full-bodied, and buttery, with medium acidity. Refreshing and crisp when chilled.

Dry on the palate with wood, vanilla, grapefruits, spices, herbs, rotten lemons and limes.

Medium finish with limes and black pepper.

This five-year-old is on its way out. Still drinkable, but you can feel the rotten fruits both on nose and palate. Nice acidity is kept and still nicely balanced. Drinks better while very chilled, otherwise, it becomes very creamy.

Enjoyable by itself or with food. I paired it with hard and soft cheeses, almonds and walnuts.

13.5% alcohol by volume.
