Passing Time Winery

2022 Columbia Valley Chardonnay  


Tasting notes: The 2022 Chardonnay has a bright golden hue in the glass.  On the nose, aromas of ripe peach and nectarines are complimented by subtle notes of toasted oak and crème brulee.  On the palate, the wine is medium-bodied and well-balanced, with flavors of ripe Granny Smith apple, honey, and lemon curd.  The finish is long and lingering, with a hint of minerality. 

Blend: 100% Chardonnay 

Vineyards: 29% Celilo, 28% Conner Lee, 28% Andrews, 15% Boushey
Aging: 100% Barrel Aged (60% New French oak and 40% neutral French oak)


95 Points - Owen Bargreen

"The 2022 ‘Columbia Valley’ by Passing Time comes from some pretty esteemed sites including Connor Lee and Celilo Vineyards. The wine is seamless and soft on the mouth with incredible elegance and great underlying verve. Brioche and creme brûlée notes combine with marzipan and shades of Meyer lemon curd. Showing a fabulous combination of finesse and texture, with outstanding length, this full-bodied beauty is one of the great Chardonnays made in Washington State. Enjoy now and at least for another eight to ten years. Drink 2023-2031"

93 Points/ Editors Choice - Wine Enthusiast 

"An orchard hits your nose with a tight spiral of peaches and yellow apples, followed by a mildly oaky touch of vanilla burnt Basque cheesecake. That alone merits this score. The bonus is the wine's rich flavors of lemon shortbread, pears and juniper berries, all wrapped up in the glow of elevated acidity."

92 Points - James Suckling

"A full-bodied, tasty chardonnay showing baked apples, brioche, mangoes and chamomile on the nose. It's gently oily in texture with a delicious pastry character. Drink now."
