Burrowing Owl Chardonnay 2020

Oliver, Okanagan Valley, British Columbia, CanadaThis year's chardonnay is classic BOV: rich, ripe, luxuriant. Whole cluster estate fruit was 75% fermented in oak barrels with the remainder in stainless, with partial MLF, and 89% of the lot remaining in oak for 9 months prior to the final blend. Sweet cream, lemon curd, ripe melon, toasted buttered brioche, hazelnut fill the generous palate, with a lemon peel acidity to cut through the heft, taking this to a bitter citrus finish. If you like your chardy Cali styled, but want to #supportlocal, here you go.Tasted: 07 September 2022Tasted by: Prices:
