O'Rourke's Peak Cellars Unoaked Chardonnay

O'Rourke's Peak Cellars Unoaked Chardonnay 2019

Okanagan Valley, British Columbia, CanadaThe notion of unoaked chardonnay is all about purity, freshness and exciting aromatics. In this northern 50° N wine, you get a clean, dry, fresh style, and it comes with pineapple, sweet melon, and peachy/pear undertones. It’s an orchard of flavours and fun to drink. Like most unoaked wines, it lacks a midpalate and some of the creamy textures I find so attractive, but there is a place for a wine this well made, and there will be a market for it too.
