Mission Hill Perpetua Chardonnay Osoyoos Vineyard Estate 2007

Osoyoos, Okanagan Valley, British Columbia, CanadaAn interesting twist in '07 with the pronounced lemon/nettle, clove, baked apple and pear nose with a honey pineapple hazelnut undercurrent. The attack is dry and fruity with more crisp, sharp fruit and les texture than previous editions. Green apple, vanilla, baked pear, tropical, nectarine, honey, cooked marzipan and passion fruit flavours mark its firm lean palate. This too needs a year or so to round out and develop some viscosity and weight to carry the flavours.Tasted: 19 October 2009Tasted by: Anthony Gismondi and Stuart TobePrices:
