Hester Creek Chardonnay 2018

Golden Mile Bench, Oliver, Okanagan Valley, British Columbia, CanadaRipe and fruit sweet, with golden pear, yellow applesauce, caramel and toasty spice. From their Golden Mile Bench estate vineyard, this was whole cluster pressed and fermented in French oak (20% new) with the remainder in stainless, all of which spent 8 months with battonage before blending and bottling. Soft and easy in the mouth, with the aforementioned fruit sweetness, this is a friendly, albeit very older style of chardy.Tasted: 04 August 2019Tasted by: Prices: BC 21.99 winery direct, private wine shops Producer: Hester Creek Estate WineryDistributors: Peacock and Martin Wine Merchants
