Mission Hill Reserve Chardonnay 2018

Okanagan Valley, British Columbia, CanadaNow a mix of valley fruit sourced out of Oliver, Osoyoos, and Naramata, the latter brings a renewed freshness to this wine, moving into the brighter, more modern version of BC chardonnay. 75 percent is fermented and aged in oak, but only 11 percent see new oak; the remainder goes into a mix of concrete eggs and stainless. The attack is a mix of citrus led by lemon peel, green apple, and crisp pear with a creamy lees finish. A very approachable style to be served with seafood pasta or creamy cheeses.Tasted: 08 April 2020Tasted by: Prices: BC 21.99 BCLS Producer: Mission Hill Family EstateDistributors: Mark Anthony Wines and Spirits
