Chardonnay 2011

This estate has been created in 1996 by a wine lover, Ron Melville, who after a successful career in finance, put his passion for gardening and wine into the production of wine. Now Ron has been joined by his two sons Chad and Brent, and, along with winemaker Greg Brewer, they are producing around ten different wines with mainly Chardonnay or Pinot Noir. I choose this month their Chardonnay as for me it is one of the best examples for a Chardonnay bellow $25. A nice pale gold color with fresh lemon aromatics that will perfectly match your fish or white meat dishes.

Coda 2011

What’s more appropriate that a Bordeaux blend from Washington state for a bordelaise?! Winemaker Benjamin Smith and Gaye McNutt have created their own winery with the aim to produce fine wine according to the Bordeaux region’s tradition. They are producing 5 different wines which are all Bordeaux style wines with the expression of the greatest Washington State terroir. They decided to produce blended wines as they truly believe that this gives greater character and structure to the wines, I will never argue with that as a pure Bordeaux product! This is their entry level and is a great value around $26 that you can enjoy a perfectly cooked steak.
