Woodward Canyon Chardonnay 2020

America, Washington

Our Washington State Chardonnay is light straw in color and brilliantly clear. Vibrant aromas of cider apple, beeswax, and pear marry perfectly with understated oak creating subtle spice and vanilla notes. Whole cluster pressing gives delineated fruit flavors. The texture and weight create a nice mouthfeel and leave ripe fruit flavors of lemon, peach, and pommes fruit. Acidity and fruit are balanced in proportion. This meticulously made wine is best served well chilled. Proper storage for premium white wines is to cellar them on their side at 55 to 60 degrees and chill to 45 to 48 degrees (depending on the varietal) just prior to serving to avoid the development of tartrate crystals.

Winery Description

Owner and winemaker Rick Small’s family has been farming the same land where Woodward Canyon’s vineyards now lie for three generations. Rick first planted vineyards here in the late 1970’s, and Woodward Canyon was the second winery to be established in the Walla Walla appellation in 1981, after Leonetti. With deep roots in the land, Rick Small is one of a handful of the Washington wine industry’s ‘elder statesmen’ that have devoted their lives to producing some of the world’s finest wines in Washington. Woodward Canyon wines express the passion and intensity of Rick Small’s devotion to his work - he personally oversees the crafting of each of his wines from vine to bottle. Painstaking effort is taken in each step of the winemaking process, from canopy and irrigation management in the vineyard to ageing oak in order to make his own barrels at the winery. Rick’s vision for his wine has always been quality over quantity, and his enduring reputation as one of Washington’s finest winemakers is testament to his success. Woodward Canyon wines are never fined nor filtered and are always expertly handcrafted. Rick Small’s intimate knowledge of the land and passion for quality can be tasted in every glass.
