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.
McWatters Collection Sundial Vineyard Chardonnay 2011 Wine Review
Full-bodied, rich and round with aromas of green apple, white peach and toasty oak. Very generous and layered with a long finish. 4.5/5 Chardonnay food pairings: poultry, seafood, pork, rich creamed pastas, and saffron mussels in a Chardonnay infused cream broth.

|Our 2011 vintage is rich and elegant with well-balanced fruit and oak characteristics with notes of pineapple, tropical fruit, hints of honey, lemon zest and buttered toast. This opulent Chardonnay has a lingering dry finish.|
The wine was grown in the sandy loam soil of our Sundial Vineyard on the Black Sage Bench in Oliver, located in the southern part of the Okanagan Valley, where we enjoy long hot days and cool nights.
Our Chardonnay Clone 76, with its ripe tropical fruit elements, and Clone 96, with its refreshing citrus notes, were hand-picked on October 9. These classic Chardonnay attributes shine through on the nose and palate with the moderate weather imparting on this vintage a refined elegance and excellent food friendliness.
This wine is 100% Chardonnay, carefully selected at the peak of ripeness and matured in five small French oak casks.
