The Expedition Chardonnay
"Polished and spicy, this white shows peppery overtones to the apricot and grapefruit flavors, ending with an expressive finish."
Bright and jazzy, with lemon, grapefruit and green pear flavors.
"Smooth and generous, with apricot and nectarine overtones to the pear and butterscotch flavors, lingering on the expressive finish." - Harvey Steiman
This brand new release from Canoe Ridge represents a line extension called The Expedition, easy- and early-drinking wines for under $15 that are food friendly and lightly oaked. Winemaker Bill Murray has done an outstanding job of composing these wines. Taste this homage to the Horse Heaven Hills!
Notes of ripe apple and apricot introduce flavors of pear and honeydew with a zippy acidity. Rich and elegant on the finish.
