Meyer Family Vineyards Chardonnay Micro Cuvée Old Main Rd Vineyard 2020

Naramata Bench, Okanagan Valley, British Columbia, CanadaFrom their estate McLean Creek Road Vineyard, in OK Falls, this Micro Cuvée Chardonnay comes off a steep sandy and gravelled loams site, planted in 1996. After a long, cool ferment in stainless, this transferred to French oak (40% new) for MLF and 11 months on lees, with full MLF, sans bâtonnage. The Micro Cuvée is a barrel selection that was bottled unfined and coarsely filtered. Ripe, dense, and powerful with pineapple rind, smoked stones, toast, ripe fragrant pear filling a full, expansive palate, finishing with some ginger spicing and vanilla. This is a local, modern take on traditional California, and worth a try to partner with rich creamy dishes.Tasted: 09 May 2022Tasted by: Prices:
