Meyer Family Vineyards Chardonnay Micro Cuvée Old Main Road Vineyard 2011

Naramata Bench, Okanagan Valley, British Columbia, CanadaOld Main Road Vineyard is the source of the Micro Cuvee in 2011 a wine made only in vintages deemed worthy and only from the very best barrels in this case two puncheons. A clear jump up in intensity, the style is firm with vibrant acidity and a stony, mineral lean-ess that suggests it could age handsomely for years. The palate is a mix of hazelnuts, pears and leesy notes with bits of honey, citrus rind and a hint of tropical fruit. This wine needs time and food but will repay patience and bottle ageing. You can serve it now with halibut.Tasted: 22 November 2013Tasted by: Anthony Gismondi and Stuart TobePrices: BC 65.00 Producer: Meyer Family VineyardsDistributors: International Cellars Inc.
