Bella Wines Chardonnay Ancestrale Bella Estate Vineyard 2021

Naramata Bench, Okanagan Valley, British Columbia, CanadaThis Ancestrale comes off Bella's Estate Vineyard, and is a Dijon clone rooted into their young organically / biodynamically farmed steep clays. Shining green apple, pear skin, crushed rocks skip across a slight 11.4% palate, lit with buzzy acidity and laced with alluring salinity. There is such a welcome balance and energy to Jay's 2021's, making them eminently charming (and smashable). 415 bottles.Tasted: 30 July 2022Tasted by: Treve RingPrices:
