Celilo Vineyard Chardonnay Columbia Gorge 2008

Alas we get to my favorite wine from the Society for American Wines Phelp’s Creek tasting featuring the wines of Oregon and Portland. This was the third wine of the evening and is pale in color with a richer more buttery smell. The wine is quite nice on the mid pallet with some nice complexity. The oak is well under control and is not overwhelming. There’s no creamyness to it. The wine is quite well done and is even more to my tastes. If your thinking this write up sounds a whole lot like the previous one, it’s because it is very similar, just better. The finish is medium and it lingers nicely in the mouth. The great thing about it is that it is actually cheaper! Not available in the LCBO, but worth about $24 at the winery. This was my favorite wine of the evening! Yumm … I would dub this a middle of the road chard, not over the top, not over baked. Just right for me!
