Spearhead Chardonnay Clone 95 2019

Okanagan Valley, British Columbia, CanadaSpearhead’s Clone 95 label is a single French clone bottling from a single site, Duncan Vineyard, on the Naramata Bench. The style is fresh with a mineral, leesy, hazelnut nose, and a very attractive creamy texture. The palate is fun with more ripe pineapple, grapefruit mixed with a liberal dose of French oak. Mostly fresh and stylish, this is a terrific direction for Okanagan chardonnay to be heading. Drink or hold, there is no rush here. Good value.Tasted: 14 August 2021Tasted by: Anthony GismondiPrices: BC 30.00 winery online/direct, select private retailers Producer: Spierhead WineryDistributors: Renaissance Wine Merchants Ltd.
