You just might consider making this round, ripe 2021 Roaming Dog Chardonnay your best friend. With the taste of apples and pear, it delivers the scrumptiousness you'd hope for in a Chard without being too sweet.
From the acclaimed Columbia Valley, it's perfect on its own or with food. Want a Chardonnay that over-delivers on taste and value? Toast!
When we needed a name for our wine, Roaming Dog just seemed to fit. Crafted exclusively with grapes from Washington's panoramic Columbia Valley AVA, they’re easy going with just the right notes of fruit and oak and of course, as good of a companion as Blue.
Grapes were delicatley hand picked and pressed using a gentle, champagne style pressing cycle to minimize color and tannin extraction. They are then cold settled, racked, and fermented with a variety of yeast strains to dryness before being aged for ten months in stainless steel.
Green apple, hints of pear and wet stone on the nose. Bright and lively on the palate, medium bodied framed by fresh acidity and hint of vanilla on the finish.
Perfectly paired with oysters, chicken piccata, and vegetable risotto.
