BlackSmith 2010 Chardonnay
Blacksmith is Forgeron Cellars line of outstanding and affordable wines. To get this combination of quality and value, we source our grapes from different varieties and vineyards and then, with skillful winemaking, craft them into the highest possible quality vintages.
Our Chardonnay is from unique vineyard sites located throughout the Columbia Valley allowing us to focus on the terroir of each vineyard and bring distinct characteristics of the fruit to the forefront. It's a classic, bright Chardonnay that greets your nose with crisp pear, white flowers & lemon basil. These aromas set the stage for a thick, rich and juicy mouth-feel with flavors of pineapple, white peach and stone balanced by hints of mandarin & lemon.
Enjoy this with Risotto & Prawns, Chicken Salad pitas, or grilled Halibut with fresh lemon and herbs.
BlackSmith Wines are not available in the Forgeron Cellars Tasting Room. Please check with your favorite local restaurants, wine shops, or grocery stores for availability or have them contact us so we may connect them with our distributor in their area.
