TIME Estate Winery 2013 Chardonnay (Black Sage Bench) Okanagan Valley - BC
Availability: Select VQA and BCLDB stores
Date Tasted: May 15st, 2015
Tasting Notes: A deep golden hue, this Black Sage Bench Chardonnay is not for the faint of heart. It's a powerful, French-oaked, butter-bomb explosion of ripe, orchard and melon fruit on the intense nose and the lush, unctuous palate where tropical fruit acidity tries to reign in the plumpness, and nearly does. Unfortunately, the palate fails to fully integrate the alcohol and we're left with lingering, 'hot' notes on the shortened finish. Drink now-2016.
