Spearhead Chardonnay Clone 95 2021

Okanagan Valley, British Columbia, CanadaThe 2021 Chardonnay Clone 95 comes from the Duncan Vineyard on the Naramata Bench. The fruit is hand harvested and whole bunch pressed before being fermented and aged in French barriques and puncheons (25% new) for ten months. Look for deliciously balanced honeyed pastry over lemons and stony mineral notes. Round and nearly lush, it finishes with hints of tropical fruits and just the right amount of bitterness. Think chicken Parmesan or Cordon Bleu.Tasted: 21 April 2023Tasted by: Anthony GismondiPrices:
