JoieFarm 2006 Reserve Chardonnay - 90pts

JoieFarm 2006 Reserve Chardonnay (Naramata Bench) Okanagan Valley - BC

Availability: Sold out
Cost: $35 (est)
Alcohol: 13%
Date Tasted: August 24th, 2012

Tasting Notes: From the cellar. At 6 years of age this Chardonnay, by BC wine standards, is a senior citizen enjoying the twilight of its life... or is it? Aromas of butter, pear, apple and minerals have evolved into a lovely bouquet filled with honeydew and smoky stonefruit notes. The palate's green apple tang has mellowed, yet the lively acid is still present and still grounding the lush fruit and rich oak flavours. It shows no signs of being in decline and should remain a perfect match for mushroom risotto for another few years. Delicious! Drink now-2015+.
