Spearhead Chardonnay Clone 95

Spearhead Chardonnay Clone 95 2018

Okanagan Valley, British Columbia, CanadaClone 95 is a unique bottling of a single French clone grown on two very different sites, one on the Naramata Bench the other on Spearhead's home site in southeast Kelowna. It is a very stylish chardonnay, and fun drink from its mineral, leesy, hazelnut nose flecked with ripe, pear to its creamy textures and flavourful ripe red apple and preserved lemon palate. It's fermented and aged in French oak for ten months in a combination of smaller standard barriques and larger format puncheons. No rush to drink, but it's in great shape already.Tasted: 30 August 2020Tasted by: Anthony GismondiPrices: BC 30.00 winery online/direct, select private retailers Producer: Spierhead WineryDistributors: Renaissance Wine Merchants Ltd.
