Anthony Gismondi on Wine
50th Parallel Estate Chardonnay

50th Parallel Estate Chardonnay 2018

Lake Country, Okanagan Valley, British Columbia, CanadaLove how bright and nutty this wine can be, with a creamy, complex texture, and sharp lemon, nuts, and citrus. It is hard to believe it has been through malolactic fermentation, given the bite of acidity throughout. Cool-climate chardonnay at its best. Look for a spicy, leesy, apple butter nose to spill across the palate. More pear, creamy citrus, butter notes line the palate. Young and fresh, but this is going to age well through 2025. Perfect for shellfish or roast chicken and one to savour. Well done.Tasted: 19 June 2020Tasted by: Anthony GismondiPrices: BC 39.00 winery online/direct Producer: 50th Parallel EstateDistributors: Winery Direct
