Fitzpatrick Family Vineyards Big Leap Chardonnay 2021

Okanagan Valley, British Columbia, CanadaThis year's Big Leap Chardonnay blends estate fruit with chardy from the southern Okanagan, with 50% fermenting in stainless and the rest in neutral French oak. It sees partial MLF and monthly b√Ętonnage. Yellow apple, custard, and creamy lees run the medium palate, with peach fuzz spicing through the snappy finish. A simple, friendly chardy for cracking now.Tasted: 07 August 2023Tasted by: Prices:
