Blue Mountain Chardonnay 2015

Okanagan Valley, British Columbia, CanadaTwenty-six-year old vines and five clones go into what is the ripest chardonnay we have tasted form this Famed Okanagan Falls property. Whole cluster pressed, it’s half fermented and aged in stainless, and the remainder fermented and aged eleven months in older French oak. The nose is fruity the textures creamy with ripe apple, lemon curd and pear. Delicate whiffs of clove and hazelnut finish with lingering toasty spices. This strikes a nice chord between fresh and bright, and creamy and rich. Drinking well now with halibut or sablefish, but will impress with a couple of years' cellaring.Tasted: 29 March 2017Tasted by: Treve RingPrices: BC 20.90 winery direct, private wine shops AB 27.00 ON 24.00 LCBO QC 24.00 NB 26.00 MB 26.00 Producer: Blue Mountain Vineyard & CellarsDistributors: Keystone Fine Wines
