Chain Reaction Chardonnay 2021

British Columbia, CanadaIn 2021, Chain Reaction released its first chardonnay from its Naramata Bench estate vineyard, planted in 2019. The nose and palate are a mix of leesy vanilla and sweet pears. Soft and round, the wine is coated in French oak from front to back, which I hope is a result of it being year one for their chardonnay, without older barrels to choose from. Still, it remains relatively bright and at 15 cases, I'm sure it is long gone. I await version two and the reduction in new oak.Tasted: 01 July 2023Tasted by: Prices:
