ēlicit Wine Project Chateau Ste Michelle, Borne of Fire Chardonnay 2019 Columbia Valley

15

ēlicit Wine Project, of which Borne of Fire is one brand, is the innovation hub for Ste Michelle Wine Estates. In 2021, the area in which the vineyards for this wine reside received their own AVA, The Burn of Columbia Valley.
Really ripe peach and yellow apple, cantaloupe, popcorn, this lotion-like thickness on the nose that, quite literally, smells like unscented body lotion. Intensely reminiscent of canned peaches in flavour profile. A hard-press skinsy bitterness. Full-bodied and ripe. Finish is short. (SCJ)
