(2013 Vintage) The vintage was ideal for creating a rich palate weight and plenty of tropical notes. The growing season was long and warm with the fruit harvested under ideal conditions in early September. Flavors of golden delicious apples, Meyer lemon and just a hint of ripe tropical fruit marry together beautifully while a balanced acidity gives it a bright clean finish. Pair this refreshing Chardonnay with a chanterelle herb frittata, lemon roasted chicken, or a mango avocado and smoked salmon salad.
Looking for a wine to make you smile? The Mirth Chardonnay from Corvidae (an offshoot of the incredibly successful Owen Roe winery) will make you grin from ear to ear. Not only is it unbelievably affordable, but it's clean and vibrant and an absolute joy to drink. Made from Columbia Valley Chardonnay fermented entirely in stainless steel it has fresh golden apple, Meyer lemon and nectarine aromas and flavors all knit together by vibrant acdity. Perfect with salmon, a Pacific Northwest stable, or maybe geoduck, if you can find it.
Light & mellow
not too oaky
