Clos du Soleil Winemaker's Series La Cote Vineyard Chardonnay 2019

Keremeos, Similkameen Valley, British Columbia, CanadaFrom their estate La Côte Vineyard, in transition to certified organic, this was whole cluster pressed and fermented in French puncheons, where it remained for MLF and 8 months' maturity, with occasional bâtonnage. Though the wood used isn't new, it is present, with a tight, stalky/reedy framework housing steely pear, yellow apple, melon, pineapple rind, lemon pulp. There's an earthy lees lining the base that lingers on the stunted finish. Youthful and clunky at this stage, so best to wait a while before cracking.Tasted: 15 August 2020Tasted by: Prices: BC 20.61 wine club member exclusive Producer: Clos du Soleil WineryDistributors: Select Wines & Spirits
