Upper Bench Chardonnay Estate Grown 2020

Okanagan Valley, British Columbia, CanadaThis is the best I have tasted from Upper Bench, led by a subtle shift from too much oak and tropical fruit to something just a little more serious. The Narmata estate fruit is partially oaked with 50% aged in French oak barrels for three months and the remainder in stainless tanks. Creamy and bright with a peachy honeyed palate, here with some pineapple and a warm cashew finish. More Napa than Naramata, but many will embrace this style.Tasted: 02 June 2023Tasted by: Anthony GismondiPrices:
