Blue Mountain Vineyard and Cellars 2016 Chardonnay (Okanagan Falls) Okanagan Valley - BC
Availability: Direct from winery here and private wine stores
Date Tasted: February 7th, 2018
Tasting Notes: A refreshing Chardonnay to pair with sensual/textural seafood entrées like seared scallops or poached halibut thanks to its vibrant citrus fruit on the vanilla scone and oak scented nose and on the lees'n'mineral spiked, medium bodied palate.
This vintage is perhaps a tad too acidic for pasta dishes, but it can happily stand on its. Finish is moderately long and dry with a touch of lingering spice and lemon/lime. Enjoy now and over the next 3 years. Drink now-2021.
