Meyer Family Vineyards Chardonnay Dekleva Clone Anarchist Mountain Vineyard 2022

Osoyoos, Okanagan Valley, British Columbia, CanadaThis is the third single vineyard Anarchist Mountain Chardonnay from one of BC's chardy specialists. This comes from their family's estate, Osoyoos vineyard, planted in 1985 to an unknown clone (planted by Anthony Dekleva, hence the name on the label). This was native fermented long and cool in stainless, then transferred to French oak (33% new) for 11 months' rest on lees, without b√Ętonnage. Ripe and creamy, with ample pineapple, lemon curd, ripe pear, and toast gliding across the glossy, medium bodied palate, lingering with dried sage. Very southern Okanagan, in all its abundance, this well-handled chardy would suit creamy dishes now.Tasted: 02 December 2023Tasted by: Prices:
