Anthony Gismondi on Wine
Mirabel Chardonnay

Mirabel Chardonnay 2018

East Kelowna, Okanagan Valley, British Columbia, CanadaMatt Dumayne (Okanagan Crush Pad) is the winemaker behind the Kelowna-based Mirabel Vineyards A small amount of chardonnay has been planted on the estate but this fruit for this wine is Naramata grown. The style is lean and linear with bright acidity that allows for a full malolactic fermentation and almost a year of ageing on its lees. Dumayne is a ‘less is more’ winemaker, leaving a very pure expression of BC chardonnay. Look for tropical fruit peeking through the streamlined palate, with lots of pears, apple, and a strong mineral wet stone undercurrent. Give this some time in bottle to blossom.Tasted: 04 September 2020Tasted by: Anthony GismondiPrices: BC 28.00 winery online/direct, select private retailers, restaurants Producer: Mirabel VineyardsDistributors: Winery Direct
