Bramito del Cervo Chardonnay 2017

Umbria, ItalyBram├Čto is made with grapes grown at centuries-old Castello della Sala some 18 kilometers from the famed hilltop town of Orvieto. Fossils dotted clay soil is the home of this chardonnay that projects elegance and minerality on the nose and palate. 2017 had some frost issues so the crop was reduced but the quality is fine. It opens with an enticing fresh, saline, mineral nose that leads to fresh, long, citrus flavours that persist and linger but with tension and vibrancy. The ferment is mix of barrel and stainless-steel lending it more of a drink now persona. Similarly, only the barrel fermented juice goes through malolactic further keeping it fresh and vital. A perfect solution for most west coast seafood and New World restaurant wine lists.Tasted: 03 November 2018Tasted by: Anthony GismondiPrices: BC 34.00 private wine shops ON 22.00 QC 22.95 SAQ Producer: Castello della SalaDistributors: Mark Anthony Wines and Spirits
