2018 Ryan Patrick Naked Chardonnay
Ryan Patrick has created an approachable, savory and refreshing style of Chardonnay, sourcing fruit from warmer sites in the Columbia Valley to lend a rich and ripe profile to the wine. Malolactic fermentation, along with sur lie aging, allows for savory characters to develop, while tank fermentation maintains fresh acidity. Aromas of ripe pear and apple with a hint of apricot and pineapple. A refreshing yet savory entry with a fresh fruit driven mid palate and an elegant finish.
