Fort Berens White Gold 2018

Lillooet, British Columbia, CanadaWhite Gold is the top of the line chardonnay at Fort Berens, and it is entirely Lillooet-grown chardonnay from Dry Creek Vineyard. The honeyed, toasted nose is a nod to French oak barrel fermentation and ageing in the same vessels with lees stirring. It's fully ripe, perhaps a bit too ripe for some, although I suspect a wider spectrum of consumers will be fine with style. Look for baked apple and peach, with soft honeyed fruit and moderate acidity. Clean and fresh, you can drink it now. Try this with richer pasta dishes, butter chicken, or freshly cracked crab and drawn butter.Tasted: 17 November 2020Tasted by: Prices: BC 29.99 winery online/direct, select private retailers, grocery Producer: Fort Berens Estate WineryDistributors: The Drinks List
