CedarCreek Chardonnay

CedarCreek Chardonnay 2018

British Columbia, CanadaThe 2019 Chardonnay is unrecognizable at first, with its new label, and fancy Stelvin Lux closure. From various estate plots, this slowly fermented in French barrels and foudre for more than 3 months before aging in the same vessels for 10 months. Full on the palate, the bright yellow apple and pear fruit is decked with a healthy slick of lees, and lightly bracketed with a refreshing lemon pith rinse. This is familiar chardonnay, well attended to, and creeping ever so modern, fresh and tight. A smart forward move for this wine and winemaker Taylor Whelan.Tasted: 04 December 2019Tasted by: Prices: BC 18.99 BCLS Producer: CedarCreek Estate WineryDistributors: Mark Anthony Wines and Spirits
