Meyer Family Vineyards Chardonnay Old Main Road Vineyard 2022

Naramata Bench, Okanagan Valley, British Columbia, CanadaFew chardonnays are as attractive as this wine, which is off the hop. Look for an inviting swath of reduction that draws you into this salty, fresh pear and apple affair, drenched in citrus. The flavours continue across the palate, adding hazelnuts and oyster liqueur. This is delicious stuff and should be a delight for chardonnay fans. the price is an outright bargain. The Old Main Road Vineyard's 26 year old vines sit over silty clay loams on the Naramata Bench, and were fermented in stainless at low temperatures before moving into French oak (25% new) and 11 months on its lees. It undergoes full malolactic fermentation but there is no b√Ętonnage.Tasted: 07 November 2023Tasted by: Prices:
