14 Hands Chardonnay: a mellow Washington white
I'm not normally a big fan of domestic Chardonnays. They often taste like wood chips due to overzealous use of oak barrels during the fermentation process. The 14 Hands winery avoids this sin, and has a lovely result to show for their efforts. Pleasing aromatic notes of pear and apple combined with a soft, mellow finish make this a perfect pick for the beginning of autumn. Enjoy this Washington white with chicken or seafood. $10 at World Market.
