Burrowing Owl Estate Winery Chardonnay 2010
Note: I publish batches of reviews that I call Good Values Wine Picks. These are from the regular section of the liquor store rather than the Vintages section, and tend to be lower priced and the most widely available of all wines. The last four reviews I did were: March 5, February 26, September 11 and July 26.
Burrowing Owl Estate Winery Chardonnay 2010 Wine Review
Gorgeous! Full-bodied, buttery and round with a luxurious hazelnut, toasted almond nose. So balanced yet packed with character and flavour. Don't over-chill this wine or you'll miss all its fine nuances. 4.6/5 Chardonnay food pairings: rotisserie chicken with thyme and crispy roasted potatoes.

|The grapes for this wine were hand harvested from the Burrowing Owl Estate vineyards in September, 2010. The fruit was wholecluster pressed and the juice drained by gravity flow into stainless steel tanks where it was chilled and allowed to settle for 24 hours to remove excess solids. It was then racked off its lees and inoculated with a mixture of preferred yeast strains selected for aromatic and textural contributions. The wine was then transferred to a mixture of barrels from our preferred coopers (90% French, 10% American, 50% new, 50% one year old) for barrel fermentation and partial Malolactic (ML) fermentation. After ML fermentation, the wine was held in barrel for approximately 9 months and the yeast lees were stirred fortnightly to further enhance mouth feel. The wine was then removed from barrels, stabilized and filtered in preparation for bottling, which occurred in August, 2010.|
