Liquidity Wines Estate Chardonnay 2017

Okanagan Falls, Okanagan Valley, British Columbia, CanadaA fun chardonnay with peach, apricot, pear, citrus wrapped in a leesy mineral scent that tempers the fruitiness. The palate is medium-weight with light nutty vanilla notes mixed with more orchard fruits. Balanced, if a touch sweet, this is a crowd-pleasing style that is best served with creamy seafood dishes. It is all clone 76 chardonnay planted in 1994 and 2009 at the winery’s Allendale Vineyard. It was barrel fermented in only 14 percent new French oak; the remaining wood was three to eight years old. Forty percent of the wine went through malolactic fermentation, and it was all aged on lees in barrel for nine months before blending and bottling. Excellent value.Tasted: 25 July 2019Tasted by: Prices: BC 29.00 winery direct; private wine shops Producer: Liquidity Wine LtdDistributors: Winery Direct
