Blue Mountain Estate Cuvée Chardonnay 2020

Okanagan Falls, Okanagan Valley, British Columbia, CanadaThe Estate Chardonnay uses 14-31 year old estate vines and clones 76, 95, 96, and 548. The fruit was whole cluster pressed and native fermented (full MLF) and aged in new-3rd year 228L French oak where it remained until the following March. The wood is very noticeable in this young wine, powering over the ripe green apple, pear skin, pineapple, French cream, toasted nutmeg spicing to the warm finish. At this stage, best served with equally powerful dishes, preferably butter / lemon drenched.Tasted: 01 August 2022Tasted by: Prices:
