This was just too good an opportunity to pass up. This amazing deal on the Mercer Chardonnay was originally intended for a large airline company. In the end, they decided to only take half of the deal, and that's when we were approached. We tasted the wine and didn't hesitate at all; the 2007 Mercer Chardonnay from Columbia Valley was absolutely delicious. Some subtle green apple mixed in with some citrus and fresh acidity on the finish. In short, a very crisp style that drinks deliciously.
Most of the juice, 88%, was fermented in French oak barrels and left on the yeast lees for 8 months. Occasional stirring of the lees released yeast-bound flavor and body enriching compounds back into the wine. A portion of the wine, 12%, was fermented in stainless steel tanks to retain the fresh bright fruit of Chardonnay and then blended back with the barrel portions.
Very pleasant, relatively light, showing a pretty mix of citrus and tropical fruit, fresh cream, light toast and a hint of cinnamon. The alcohol rests at 14.1% but feels a bit lighter, and the wine has a pleasing ripeness without becoming fat or heavy.
Jay Miller Wine Advocate 87 Points
The 2007 Chardonnay delivers aromas of green apple, pear, and white peach. Dry, ripe, and fruity, it will provide pleasure for another 2-3 years.
Wine Spectator 88 Points
Bright and silky, with an appealing range of apple, pineapple and citrus aromas and flavors that linger on the light-textured finish. Drink now. 6,429 cases made.–HS
