Meyer Family Vineyards Chardonnay Stevens Block Old Main Road Vineyard 2017Naramata Bench, Okanagan Valley, British Columbia, CanadaFrom one of BC's top Chardonnay producers, this single vineyard, Naramata Bench white has a ripe and generous mid, with searing lemon, chalk, heady pear, and downy, cloud-plush lees. There's a lick of reduction that works to counter the ripe fruit sweetness to welcome effect. Give this youthful wine time to breath now, or better yet, cellar for a couple of years. This from the coolest part of the Old Main Road vineyard in Naramata, around 350m and planted to Wente 4 and 5, and on alluvial deposits / silt loam overlaying clay. This spent four months on fine lees in stainless, and with full MLF.Tasted: 13 September 2018Tasted by: Treve RingPrices: BC 28.00 winery direct, private wine shops Producer: Meyer Family VineyardsDistributors: International Cellars Inc.
