Culmina Family Estate R and D Chardonnay

Culmina Family Estate R and D Chardonnay 2019

Golden Mile Bench, Oliver, Okanagan Valley, British Columbia, CanadaHow much do I like this style of chardonnay? And at $20, what a bargain. R&D stands equally for research & development and is used to label the more experimental, small-lot line of wines pursued at Culmina Family estate. The label photos refer to the founder Don and his twin Ron Triggs who themselves grew up researching life. The nose is an exquisite take on tangerines and pears. The palate is equally enticing with its pear, mineral, crunchy fruit and crisp acidity. Delicious, versatile, and ready to drink.Tasted: 23 June 2020Tasted by: Prices: BC 20.00 winery direct Producer: Culmina Family Estate WineryDistributors: Winery Direct
