Bartier Bros. Chardonnay Cerqueira Vineyard

Bartier Bros. Chardonnay Cerqueira Vineyard 2014

Oliver, Okanagan Valley, British Columbia, CanadaFruit from the Cerqueira Vineyard on Black Sage Gravel Bar goes into this whole cluster chardonnay, a rich, expansive and flinty style (that used to be named Barrel Fermented Chardonnay). This richer chardonnay echoes modern white Burgundy, though the fruit here is ripe southern Okanagan, with fleshy white peach, toast, clove and cream. Indigenous yeast from the vineyard was used, as was a split between two-year-old thin stave American oak and stainless steel, full lees contact and malolactic. Not shy, and best poured with richer crab or lobster dishes, or full cream pastas.Tasted: 01 March 2016Tasted by: Treve RingPrices: BC 27.00 winery direct, private wine shops Producer: Bartier Bros.Distributors: Winery Direct
