Blomidon Chardonnay

Blomidon Chardonnay 2016

Annapolis Valley, Nova Scotia, CanadaThis is a lean and citrus-dressed chardonnay from Nova Scotia's Annapolis Valley, and the marine Atlantic nature certainly strikes out from this bottle. At this youthful stage, that butts right up against the French oak fermentation and rest for ten months. The wood, though moderate, works against the crisp green apple, lemon, fine cream, leaving the finish a little clumsy. I'd partner this now with poached chicken or saucy clams, or put it away for a couple of years to let the elbows and knees settle. Serious effort.Tasted: 23 December 2018Tasted by: Treve RingPrices: NS 35.00 winery direct Producer: Blomidon Estate WineryVarietal: Chardonnay
