Crowsnest Family Reserve Stahltank Chardonnay

Crowsnest Family Reserve Stahltank Chardonnay 2019

Similkameen Valley, British Columbia, CanadaOne of the best yet for Crowsnest. In my opinion, it is the best wine they make year in and year out. Stahltank refers to the stainless steel fermentation that retains freshness and, in this case, the intensity. I wish it were a bit drier, but we know there is a large market for this style too. The melon and orange carries through to the back end of the palate, flecked with ripe tangerine and mineral streaks that hold it together. Highly drinkable and would be fun with spicy chicken curry.Tasted: 26 June 2020Tasted by: Anthony GismondiPrices: BC 20.00 winery direct, private wine shops Producer: Crowsnest Vineyards and Barcello CanyonDistributors: New World Wines Incorporated
