Fort Berens Chardonnay 2013

Lillooet, British Columbia, CanadaSubtle herbs, prickly pear, white peach and pear opens this juicy and bright chardonnay. The tight palate shows meadow, gooseberry, anise, citrus and stone - crisp and focussed, with a nice peach cushion on the palate and a light rasp of peach fuzz on the finish. The choice to ferment in both stainless and French oak works well - nice balance throughout. Pour with citrus kissed creamy pastas or scallops.Tasted: 09 March 2015Tasted by: Prices: BC 20.00 vqa, private wine stores, winery direct Producer: Fort Berens Estate WineryDistributors: The Drinks List
