Meyer Family Vineyards Chardonnay McLean Creek Road Vineyard 2020

Okanagan Falls, Okanagan Valley, British Columbia, CanadaFrom their estate McLean Creek Road Vineyard, in OK Falls, this Micro Cuvée Chardonnay comes off a steep sandy and gravelled loams site, planted in 1994. After a long, cool partial native ferment in stainless, this transferred to French oak (22% new) for MLF and 11 months on lees, sans bâtonnage. This was unfined at bottling. Tight and nimble, this hums on a stony baseline, with green apple, lemon pith/peel, tight white blossoms, subtly earthy lees, and toasted wood spice that sticks on the finish. Very much in youth, give this smart wine some time to come together in your cellar.Tasted: 19 November 2021Tasted by: Prices: BC 31.39 winery online/direct Producer: Meyer Family VineyardsDistributors: Olivier Brands
