Perseus Select Lots Chardonnay 2015

Penticton Bench, Okanagan Valley, British Columbia, CanadaNice improvement here in this toned-down chardonnay, although reference to the Old World might be a bit premature. The fruit is southern Okanagan based from the Golden Mile and Black Sage benches. It’s aged in 500L puncheons of 50 percent new American oak, adding quite a rich vanilla tone to the wine. The palate is a boisterous mix of candied lemons and toasted hazelnuts. The finish is long and smooth with the oak punching through the back end. Best with rich cheeses and creamy shellfish dishes.Tasted: 19 April 2017Tasted by: Anthony GismondiPrices: BC 24.99 winery direct or private wine stores Producer: PerseusDistributors: Lone Tree Cellars
