Monte Creek Ranch 2014 Chardonnay (Kamloops) Okanagan Valley - BC
Availability: Direct from winery here
Cost: $15.99 (including taxes)
Date Tasted: July 21st, 2015
Tasting Notes: A partially oaked, medium bodied Chardonnay from Kamloops-based winery Monte Creek Ranch, opening with muted aromas of apple skins, grapefruit flesh and a little bit of smoky flint on the nose. Palate is a little disjointed at the moment with acidic, bitter, mineral and fruit elements not yet fully in-synch. Another 6 months of bottle age should promote further integration. Finishes with just a touch of residual sweetness beneath lingering lemon zest notes. Drink 2016-2018.
