JoieFarm 2011 "En Famille" Reserve Chardonnay - 91pts

JoieFarm 2011 "En Famille" Reserve Chardonnay (Naramata Bench) Okanagan Valley - BC

: Direct from the winery here
Cost: $30
Alcohol: 13.7%
Production: 408 cases
Date Tasted: July 22nd, 2013

Tasting Notes: A bit of a departure for JoieFarm with the release of the new vintage of their reserve Chardonnay, now dubbed "En Famille", sees the focus less on balanced opulence and more on subtle layering of orchard fruit, mineral and oak influenced characters: IE more French. Age-worthy and true to the past success of the more robust editions, this elegant and refined version is one heck of a tasty Chardonnay that just gets better in the glass over time. Tasting brilliantly now, though, should hold for another 4-5 years. Drink 2013-2018.
