Sperling Vineyards Organic Chardonnay 2018

East Kelowna, Okanagan Valley, British Columbia, CanadaWow, wow, wow. This is the best I have seen from Sperling, from fruit grown on the family's historic and limestone-laced Kelowna vineyard. It is fermented and aged in large format French oak barrels, barely noticeable on the palate, although the ratio of wood to juice appears to have worked its magic on the wine. The salty lemon flavours are heaven, and the balance is even better. It goes on forever with a perfect dusting of savoury Okanagan to set it apart from most anything else with chardonnay on the label. Complex and sophisticated, it's as good as anything in the country.Tasted: 05 June 2021Tasted by: Prices: BC 26.00 winery direct Producer: Sperling VineyardsDistributors: Select Wines & Spirits
