Meyer Family Vineyards 2011 McLean Creek Rd Chardonnay is WineAlign Rhys Pender’s Judge’s Pick from the 2013 National Wine Awards of Canada and Rhys scores it 92 points!
In the WineAlign Blog Rhys says “There is great chardonnay popping up in BC and Ontario with increased frequency. These are not just “good” wines, they are up there with the many “excellent” chardonnays of the world. It is not an uncommon sensation while judging Canadian chardonnay to develop an ear-to-ear grin when that magic combination of subtly used oak, lees, freshness, complexity and electricity all come together in a seamless package. One of my favourite chardonnay producers is Meyer in the Okanagan and I gave this wine 92 points in the competition. Great fresh acidity, lemon, nectarine, electricity on the palate, subtle oak, minerality, length and wonderful integrity make this wine a joy that could stand up amongst many chards more than double the price from elsewhere in the world.”
