Fort Berens Chardonnay 2020

Lillooet, British Columbia, CanadaThis year's chardonnay blends 83% from their dry creek estate, and 17% from Riverbend Vineyard in the Similkameen. This was primarily fermented in stainless, with the remainder in French barrels, with regular bâtonnage. This is a slender, softer, somewhat flat rendition, with muted lemon, yellow apple, and a steel note that is more stainless than mineral-driven. The finish is a bit sour at this point.Tasted: 02 January 2022Tasted by: Prices: BC 20.99 winery online/direct, select private retailers, grocery Producer: Fort Berens Estate WineryDistributors: The Drinks List
