Blue Mountain Vineyard and Cellars 2013 Chardonnay (Okanagan Falls) Okanagan Valley - BC

Availability: Direct from winery here and Private Wine Stores

Cost: $20.90
Alcohol: 13.5%
Date Tasted: April 18th, 2015

Tasting Notes: An excellent, cool-climate Chardonnay that offers a nice, (nearly) 50-50 blend of grapes fermented and aged in French oak barrels and stainless-steel tanks producing a tasty combination of lush, orchard fruit and brioche aromas and flavours with tart citrus and mineral notes. 

The generous nose gives way to a crisp, mouth-watering palate with good purity and typicity for the Burgundian variety as grown in British Columbia. Finish is long and dry with a touch of lingering spice and vanilla flavours. Enjoy now and over the next 3-4 years with further development a possibility. Drink now-2018.
