2011 Tanzer - 92 points - Bright yellow. Lovely lift to the aromas of peach, nectarine and sexy vanillin oak. Tactile and vibrant, with complex flavors of stone fruits, quince and spices nicely complemented by the wine's oak element. Generous and broad but with no excess weight. Finishes dry, subtle and long, with lingering spice character. An excellent showing.

2010 Vintage Tasting Notes

2010 Wine Spectator - 91 points - Refined, elegant and tightly wound, with a good tension as the pear and spice flavors play against earthy and minerally nuances on the finish. Drink now through 2014. - H.S.

In the tradition of the best Chardonnays of Washington State, rich flavors, but classically styled, with gentle aromas of white peach and stone fruit, floral notes, and wood spice, Full of fresh apricots and a light smattering of vanilla, lively citrus and minerals in the finish. The wine is lightly toasty - the oak is present but slight. Winemaker John Abbott suggests that the wine will pair well with a rich chicken dish like chicken breasts baked with morels and tarragon in cream sauce.

"Carefully chosen cool climate sites provide the fruit for this Chardonnay. We then employ all of the traditional techniques: whole cluster pressing, barrel fermentation, and aging sur lie. The result is a Chardonnay with elegance and richness that is balanced with nice acidity making it an excellent companion to food." - the winery

The Abeja Chardonnay is made from a blend of several Washington vineyards' fruit.
