Burrowing Owl Chardonnay 2020

Oliver, Okanagan Valley, British Columbia, CanadaAt BOV, the chardonnay is more classic than groundbreaking, relying on ripe, soft, round buttery fruit. In 2020 there is plenty of both, thanks to a warm year and 75% barrel fermentation. Almost 90% was further barrel aged for nine months. The palate is a mix of candied lemons, ripe melon, hazelnuts, and citrus. More California than Burgundy, but all in all, well made and ready to drink. Try this with buttered clams or halibut in brown butter sauce.Tasted: 17 August 2022Tasted by: Prices:
