Poplar Grove Winery 2008 Chardonnay – 88+pts
Availability: Direct from winery here and VQA stores
Date Tasted: January 1st, 2011
Tasting Notes: A charming Chardonnay from popular Naramata Bench producer Poplar Grove which exhibits classic malolactic fermentation aromas of butter cream on the nose with orchard fruit and melon notes. Richly textured on the dry palate with a nice mixture of ripe apple and pears, serene oak and steely mineral flavours. Well balanced with a moderate-plus finish and lingering vanilla spice. Drink 2011-2014.
