Meyer Family Vineyards Chardonnay Tribute Series - Terry Threlfall Old Main Road Vineyard 2020

Naramata Bench, Okanagan Valley, British Columbia, CanadaBoth Treve and I agree on this special wine that is almost as special as the guy it's named after, Terry Threlfall. I first encountered Terry at Hawksworth Restaurant and then behind the scenes at the Vancouver International Wine Festival. He led a sommelier team that took a great festival to a new level of wine competence. His unexpected death from a heart attack was a cruel ending for someone so young and so full of life. He was all you could want in a wine guy and more, which makes his choice as this year's Tribute Series nominee all the more important. The standard doesn't get any higher. As for the wine, it is a wow wine from a wow vintage. Bourgogne in B.C. is all you need to know about this bottle that is alive with green apple, mineral, a stony undercurrent riding a leesy, sea salt finish. Terry, you are widely missed.Tasted: 03 January 2022Tasted by: Prices: BC 31.39 winery online/direct Producer: Meyer Family VineyardsDistributors: Olivier Brands
