Laughing Stock Vineyards Chardonnay +06/10 2020

Okanagan Falls, Okanagan Valley, British Columbia, CanadaIn this case, a fine vintage has led to a mix of citrus, pear, vanilla, and caramel with a touch of dryness. 2020 is made with all Okanagan Falls fruit fermented in 92% oak (19% new French oak) and 8% concrete eggs. A partial malolactic fermentation occurs while the wine spends nine months ageing in 86% oak barrels (21% is new French oak), 10% concrete, and 4% stainless steel, and all the lees get a regular stirring. Bright and creamy with a dusting of hazelnuts, this is ready to drink. Mushroom risotto or roast turkey are both good matches.Tasted: 10 November 2021Tasted by: Prices: BC 31.99 winery direct Producer: Laughing Stock VineyardsDistributors: The Wine Syndicate
