Meyer Family Vineyards Chardonnay Dekleva Clone Anarchist Mountain Vineyard 2021

Osoyoos, Okanagan Valley, British Columbia, CanadaThis is the second single vineyard Anarchist Mountain Chardonnay, from one of BC's chardy specialists. This comes off their family's estate Osoyoos vineyard, planted in 1985 to an unknown clone (planted by Anthony Dekleva, hence the name on the label). This was native fermented long and cool in stainless, and then transferred to French oak (25% new) for 11 months' rest on lees, without b√Ętonnage. You can feel the southern Okanagan in this ripe, creamy chardy, with generous yellow fruit, butter, ale, and toast, which lingers on the shorter finish. Cali meets Okanagan, this young chardy is best dished with equally rich foods.Tasted: 15 January 2023Tasted by: Treve RingPrices:
