Availability: Direct from winery here and Private Wine Stores

Cost: $20.90
Alcohol: 13%
Date Tasted: March 11th, 2017

Tasting Notes: Another attractive and refreshing Chardonnay from Okanagan Falls' Blue Mountain. Well balanced with both cooling and warming characters on the aromatic nose and the textured palate; minerals, citrus fruit, lees, nectarine, Spring blossoms and subtle oak.

Sourced from the winery's home vineyard and a blend of 5 Burgundian clones, this cool-climate Chardonnay receives a 50-50 split between French oak barrels and stainless-steel tanks during fermentation and élevage. Lots of lees contact along the way contributing to the effortless, full-ish mouthfeel the wine offers. Finish is moderately long and dry with a touch of lingering spice and lemon/lime. Enjoy now and over the next 3-4 years. Drink now-2020.
