McWatters Collection Chardonnay 2020

Oliver, Okanagan Valley, British Columbia, CanadaThis stylistic chardonnay is on the bolder, creamier side of the spectrum, but it doesn't overdo it either. It has a balanced hedonism, which gives it a broad appeal. The fruit is sourced from two Osoyoos vineyards, but that southern ripeness is reined in thanks to early picking, as suggested by the 12.6% declared abv. That helps to give this a punch of freshness, balancing the richness that comes from the cellar. Melon and soft stone fruits are bolstered by popcorn, vanilla, and caramel.Tasted: 06 January 2022Tasted by: Prices: BC 34.99 BCLS, VQA, private wine shops Producer: Time Family of WinesDistributors: Dandurand
