Little Farm Winery Chardonnay 2015

Cawston, Similkameen Valley, British Columbia, CanadaAlluringly reductive, compounded with wild herbs, cracked stone, earthy lees and a savoury vanilla bean pod. The palate is plumped, but streamlined by calcium-coated bracketing. Salted hazelnuts and bitter grapefruit pith linger on the humming finish. This vintage is their best Yet; textural, linear while having a cushion of fleshiness to complete the frame. From their 4-acre organic farm in Similkameen Valley, this was whole cluster foot tread in bins before going directly into press and a long ferment (85 percent older wood). Ten months on the gross lees in older barrel and stainless, this had minimal sulphur added just before bottling. Drinking beautifully now, but will age very well also.
