Maverick Estate Winery 2014 Chardonnay (Golden Mile Bench) Okanagan Valley - BC
Availability: Direct from winery here
Production: 100 cases
Date Tasted: May 9th, 2016
Tasting Notes: A delicious, single-vineyard Chardonnay with excellent balance on the perfumed, feminine nose and the expressive, orchard'n'citrus infused palate. Sourced from the winery's Golden Mile property, the juice was fermented in French oak and then spent a further 6 months in barrel, on lees, which helped impart some body and texture to the palate and contributed warm, nutty-baked good notes to the nose. The wine saw no malolactic fermentation (a softening of the acids) leaving the finish crisp and refreshing. Nailed it! Drink 2016-2019.
