Hogue Columbia Valley Chardonnay
Our Chardonnay grapes were harvested at night or in the early morning, when the fruit was cool. To emphasize the effusive fruit character in this Chardonnay, we fermented the juice in stainless steel between 52°F and 59°F. After fermentation, 57% of the wine was aged with French and American oak for 7–8 months, imparting creamy, toasty complexity. The remaining wine was aged unoaked, retaining bright fruit flavors. To add softness and texture, 60% of the wine underwent malolactic fermentation.
The Chardonnay reveals juicy apple and pear on the nose with lemon meringue pie, creamy vanilla oak, and toast. A rich, well-balanced palate follows with flavors of fresh apple pie, lemon curd, and cream. Pair this fruit-driven, food-friendly wine with salmon-stuffed crab cakes, grilled lemon chicken, and fettuccini alfredo.
