Elephant Island The Other Way Chardonnay 2018

Naramata Bench, Okanagan Valley, British Columbia, CanadaOn Naramata Bench, this chardonnay comes off 19-year-old own-rooted vines from the estate Sideshow Hill Vineyard and saw 3 months ageing in barrel. The purity of Naramata orchard fruit streams through here, with a bright melody of apples, spice, lemon zest, and river stone. The wood plays a backdrop to the fruit, though it will certainly support it for a few years in the cellar. Well done.Tasted: 12 October 2020Tasted by: Treve RingPrices: BC 25.00 winery direct Producer: Elephant Island Orchard WinesDistributors: Peacock and Martin Wine Merchants
