Little Engine Chardonnay 2019

Naramata Bench, Okanagan Valley, British Columbia, CanadaThis Little Engine Chardonnay has a silver pewter label and is referred to as the platinum chardonnay by the winery, but not referred to as such on the label, so if you are confused, join the club. There is no confusion about the style, which is tropical Napa-ish chardonnay, with rich, oaky, honey, pineapple and vanilla. The wine is barrel aged for 17 months, with regular lees stirring to build rich, creamy, spicy textures. The final mix features 58 percent new French oak barriques and puncheons, complemented by 2nd and 3rd fill barrels. Ready to drink.Tasted: 21 April 2023Tasted by: Anthony GismondiPrices:
