Blue Grouse Chardonnay 2022

Cowichan Valley, Vancouver Island, British Columbia, CanadaNow under the Jackson Family wings, this Cowichan Valley chardonnay comes with no other details than it's from Cowichan Valley. Outside of that, there are elements of barrel aging with cloves and nutmeg up against ripe apple, melon, and island fresh acidity. There's a creamy ripe toastiness to this which stands apart to the bright saline acidity. Cali meets proper cool climate? Certainly a project to watch unfold.Tasted: 07 November 2023Tasted by: Treve RingPrices:
