Bartier Bros. Chardonnay Cerqueira Vineyard 2021

Oliver, Okanagan Valley, British Columbia, CanadaGrown at Cerqueira Vineyard, on the middle or gravel bench below the Black Sage Bench, the fruit seems to thrive over glacial till flecked with calcium carbonate-covered stones. Winemaker Michael Bartier practices very little intervention; thus, it was whole-cluster-pressed, fermented in stainless steel where it stays in contact with its lees for six months. Citrus, green apples and saline/stony notes combine to give this chardonnay a jolt of electricity to keep it fresh through its savoury sagebrush-dusted finish. Chardonnay for wine lovers and most foods.Tasted: 21 September 2022Tasted by: Prices:
