Mission Hill Perpetua Chardonnay Osoyoos Vineyard Estate 2006

Osoyoos, Okanagan Valley, British Columbia, CanadaThe MHFE top of the line chardonnay has an enticing orange, lime, green apple, vanilla, creamy lees nose with flecks of nectarine and light buttery aromas. Crisp, round and fresh on the palate it mixes lime and grapefruit with creamy vanilla, green apple skin, peach and butter flavours with a nutty, toasty lees on the finish. Good intensity and crispness with lots of citrus. Needs a year or 2 in bottle to fully develop but a very fine effort to start.Tasted: 04 November 2008Tasted by: Anthony Gismondi and Stuart TobePrices:
