Columbia Crest Grand Estates 2012 Chardonnay

The Grand Estates Chardonnay opens with rich fruit aromas of apples, melons and pears, joined by signature notes of caramelized sugar and butterscotch. Lush orchard fruit flavors are enhanced by buttery characters and lively acidity, creating a vibrant, complex wine.

Really happy with this wine.  I love buttery chardonnays and this definitely lives up to it.  It's a great combo of smooth, buttery chard with tropical candied fruits and a nice touch of brown sugar and butterscotch.  Will definitely buy again!
