Meyer Family Vineyards Chardonnay Stevens Block Old Main Road Vineyard 2018

Naramata Bench, Okanagan Valley, British Columbia, CanadaOld Main Road Vineyard sits on a terrace on Naramata Bench in the sweet spot of the Okanagan Valley. Stevens Block is one of four acres on a steep slope that has developed a particular style worthy of its label. The fruit clusters go directly to press, followed by a long 60-day indigenous ferment in stainless steel, before remaining on lees in older French oak barrels for six months. I love the searing acidity that tempers its chalky textures, leesy reduction, and on the edge ripe pear. No rush to drink this wine but it is delicious now.Tasted: 15 September 2019Tasted by: Prices: BC 28.00 winery direct, private wine shops Producer: Meyer Family VineyardsDistributors: International Cellars Inc.
