Our 2012 Chardonnay is a blend of two micro harvests from our single estate
Chardonnay block. Over 10 days we conducted these separate harvests to
capture specific attributes in the fruit. The micro harvests were then
vinified separately and aged 5 1/2 months in 50% new French oak. The 2nd
50% of the fruit harvested underwent malolactic fermentation. What
you will find is a rich, bright and balanced Chardonnay with wonderful
mouth feel. We hope you enjoy the fruits of our labours.
92 POINTS Full-bodied and poised, this subtly complex white nods in the direction of fine Meursault, with rich tropical and stone fruit caressed by well-integrated, subtly toasty oak. It’s substantial yet fresh, another standout from a top Okanagan estate. Match it with fleshy-fish dishes or roast chicken. Beppi Crossariol
