The Canoe Ridge Estate Chardonnay is refined and elegant and we like to enhance that style in the cellar. This Chardonnay delivers fresh apple, pear and spice aromas and flavors. The finish is graceful with light spice notes, which are a result of the restrained French oak treatment.

Polished, fragrant and appealing for its lively pineapple, pear and lemongrass flavors, persisting nicely on the vibrant finish. Drink now. 8,700 cases made. -HS

Oaky on the nose, but with the ripe firm fruit to support the barrel flavors, this hits the palate bang on with a powerful load of ripe apple, stone fruits, toast, spice and plain old oak. It's a style that is becoming standard for Ste. Michelle Chardonnays, a forceful, very ripe, big flavor approach that may benefit from decanting in order to smooth it out.
