Monte Creek Chardonnay Ancient Waters Series 2019

British Columbia, CanadaMonte Creek will surprise many unfamiliar with the winery's vibrant, bright fruit style. Fresh green apples lead to a chardonnay that charms with leanness and a razor-sharp acidity that cleanses the palate after every sip. The fruit was fermented in a mix of concrete and oak using indigenous yeast. The palate is tight and lined with more leesy, citrus, peach with a clean finish. It would be a fine wine to tackle creamy, fatty dishes that need a squeeze of lemon. Aged 14 months on lees and only one-third put through malolactic fermentation. The Ancient Water Series is well worth checking out.Tasted: 28 December 2021Tasted by: Anthony GismondiPrices: BC 28.00 estimated price Producer: Monte Creek RanchGrape: ChardonnayCSPC: 998062UPC: 775412900537
