Micro Cuvée Chardonnay 2021
This product is currently sold out.
Year-after-year our winemaker, Chris Carson, precisely selects the barrels that he feels are destined for this small-batch, finest Chardonnay. The grapes were hand-harvest and hand-selected from our estate-vineyard in Okanagan Fall and picked at prime ripeness and flavour. The grapes were gently pressed, and only the best juice from the first press was used. After a long, cool fermentation in stainless steel, the wine was transferred to 100% French oak barrels (40% new) where it aged for 11 months. A malolactic fermentation occurred in late Spring giving it a rich and creamy texture.
We produced 285 cases.
*Please note that in the 2021 vintage we experienced wildfires very close to our McLean Creek Rd Vineyard which has resulted in smoke being present in some wines produced from this property. We are still tasting and selling this vintage in our wine shop and found that many customers really enjoy these wines, and often don’t detect any smoke.
