Meyer Family Vineyards Chardonnay Stevens Block Old Main Road Vineyard 2017

Naramata 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.
