Fleshy, dry, fresh.
This Chardonnay (with 11% Viognier) was predominantly sourced from Hidden Terrace Vineyard in Oliver, with small additions from the Fool's Gold Vineyard in North Oliver and from the Naramata Bench. A portion was fermented in neutral French barriques, with the remaining in stainless steel. The wine in barrel then underwent malolactic fermentation.
It has fleshy sweet fruit aromas of peach and golden apples with lemon, vanilla and hints of honey and caramel. The palate is fresh and dry with flavours of yellow fruits and citrus. It has vague mineral undertones and a leesy finish.
Pair: lobster, cedar planked salmon, creamy chicken dishes, creamy fettucini, grilled white fish, breaded and fried oysters, roast chicken or squash ravioli.
