JoieFarm En Famille Reserve Chardonnay 2013

Okanagan Valley, British Columbia, CanadaRich, ripe and vanilla toned, with thick cream, overripe pear, lemon curd and cracked clove. Sweet pear, applesauce and hazelnut rule the full bodied palate, textured with wood and closed with the return of the sweet perfumed vanilla and tropical fruit, along with a rise of heat. The En Famille range is a barrel selection from the Con Vida Vineyard on the Skaha Bluff. Wild ferment and malolactic took place in French barriques and puncheons, the expansive palate plumped further with biweekly battonage.Tasted: 01 March 2016Tasted by: Treve RingPrices: BC 30.00 winery direct, private wine shops AB 38.00 Producer: JoieFarmGrape: ChardonnayCSPC: 150862UPC: 00692739000071
