Blue Mountain Estate Cuvée Chardonnay 2019

Okanagan Valley, British Columbia, CanadaFrom their Okanagan Falls estate vineyard, this is blending clones 75, 76, 95, 96, and 548, off 13-30 year old vines. This was whole cluster pressed and native fermented and then aged for 17 months in new through 3 year old 228L French barrels. Ripe and creamy, yet held bright and upright, this is shining with lemon peel, anjou pear, green apple set off by a creamy, ripe background, ample seasoned with toasty spices, roasted hazelnut and cloves. A lot of a lot at this stage, this concentrated chardonnay is better enjoyed with some time in bottle.Tasted: 07 June 2021Tasted by: Prices: BC 28.00 winery direct, private wine shops AB 27.95 private wine shops ON 24.95 Rogers & Co QC 23.95 Vinealis NB 26.00 MB 26.00 Producer: Blue Mountain Vineyard & CellarsDistributors: Keystone Fine Wines
