Noble Ridge Reserve Chardonnay 2017

Okanagan Valley, British Columbia, CanadaThe Noble Ridge Reserve is a mix of French clones 76 and 95 grown on north sloping glacial and fluvial deposits of sand, gravel, and rock inside the new Okanagan Falls sub-GI. It's aged 14 months in French oak; 20 percent is new. 2017 was a solid year with slightly smaller clusters and crop sizes, forcing a bit more fruit intensity. The Reserve is always a bit more California in style but with brighter fruit Look for peachy, creamy, honey notes. On the palate, it presents as a middleweight with ripe, creamy, spicy vanilla flavours across the finish. Rich enough for a variety of menu items, including your favourite Asian dishes.
