Blue Mountain Reserve Chardonnay 2017

Okanagan Falls, Okanagan Valley, British Columbia, Canada2017 is another strong showing for the Reserve chardonnay, a blend of five clones and estate vines up to 28 years old. It was natively fermented predominantly in barrel (70%) of varying sizes and from new through the third fill and went through partial MLF. After a July 2018 blending, this was returned to barrels to rest on lees. Lees plumped, this creamy, elegant white is full of while florals, ripe pear, lemon peel, and green apple vibrancy. Very much in youth, this will continue to mellow and merge with cellaring. Hold tight for a couple of years, or give it some time to open in glass now.Tasted: 18 April 2020Tasted by: Prices:
