Kitsch 7 Barrel Chardonnay 2019

Okanagan Valley, British Columbia, CanadaThis lean and elegant chardonnay from East Kelowna is full of satisfying aromas: orchard and citrus fruit layered with florals; spices; and crushed gravel. There’s a fair amount of new oak (57%), but it’s well integrated, not overshadowing the fruit but conferring fragrance and pleasant vanillin and nuttiness. The backbone of tight acidity framing the fruit makes the overall impression more vibrant and fresh, while subtle leesy creaminess and a hint of sweetness at the finish rounds the palate.Tasted: 26 November 2022Tasted by: Prices:
