Meyer Chardonnay Deklava Clone Anarchist Mountain Vineyard 2020

Osoyoos, Okanagan Valley, British Columbia, CanadaThis is the first single vineyard Anarchist Mountain Chardonnay, from one of BC's chardy specialists. This comes off their family's estate Osoyoos vineyard, planted in 1985 to an unknown clone (planted by Anthony Deklava, hence the name on the label). This was native fermented long and cool in stainless, and then transferred to French oak (25% new) for 11 months' rest on lees, without b√Ętonnage. Creamy and ripe with the southern Okanagan sun, with ripe white peach, pear, butter, toast, and a lick of caramel flushing out the expansive palate, one that thankfully carries a buzzing hum on the finish. Certainly the ripest, softest of this year's Meyer chardonnays.Tasted: 22 November 2021Tasted by: Prices: BC 31.39 wine club member exclusive Producer: Meyer Family VineyardsDistributors: Olivier Brands
