Culmina Family Estate Dilemma 2017

Golden Mile Bench, Oliver, Okanagan Valley, British Columbia, CanadaSourced from high up on Golden Mile Bench, Culmina's Margaret Bench mixes Dijon clones 95 and 76 and goes through a partial malolactic fermentation before ageing 9 months in an 80/20 mix of French oak (28% new) and stainless steel. The style is creamy and rich with honey and lemon curd, and a citrus, nutty, spicy, ripe pear finish. More New World, as has been its style.
