Clos du Soleil Winemaker's Series Chardonnay La Côte Vineyard 2020

Similkameen Valley, British Columbia, CanadaFrom Clos du Soleil's La Côte Vineyard, which is on track for organic certification, this chardonnay puts its Keremeos terroir at the forefront. The ripeness, and winemaking for that matter, is restrained, showing green apple, lemon, and delicate orchard blossoms that are framed more by the Similkameen's distinctive salty minerality than the subtle touch of wood. Some lees character helps to broaden the palate, but the texture is still laser sharp and precise, with a lip-smacking freshness that is the undercurrent of this wine.
