Blue Mountain Reserve Chardonnay 2016

Okanagan Falls, Okanagan Valley, British Columbia, CanadaThe Reserve Chardonnay is a structural, potent wine of 27-year-old estate vines and five French clones, fermented native and in 30/70 stainless / French wood, from new to forth fill. Ten percent of this wine goes through MLF, and the whole spends additional time on lees for added complexity. Result. Hazelnuts, creamed corn, spice, lemon curd and flinty smoke layer through the French creamy palate, laced with lemon pith to tighten, and surrounded by toasted oak to support. At this young state, the wood is up front, but give this some time in the cellar and that lemony fruit will rise up.Tasted: 15 April 2019Tasted by: Treve RingPrices: BC 29.90 winery direct, private wine shops AB 31.95 private wine shops Producer: Blue Mountain Vineyard & CellarsDistributors: Keystone Fine Wines
