CedarCreek Platinum Block 5 Single Vineyard Chardonnay 2014

Okanagan Valley, British Columbia, CanadaThis is from a single block of their estate vineyards, situated in a cooler, higher altitude site. MLF was blocked to preserve the purity of fruit, and this was fermented in a mix of French oak barrels, 500L puncheons and concrete before ten months on lees in concrete and puncheons. Broken stones and lemon pith are the gateway to an alluring green apple and wild herb textured palate, lifted with crunchy acidity and lined with earthy lees. Sea salt lingers on the very lengthy finish. Textured and complex, and a baby still - wait to see what this wine does with a couple of years in the cellar.Tasted: 29 July 2016Tasted by: Treve RingPrices:
