Township 7 Vineyards & Winery Okanagan 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.

Buttery, rich and full-bodied with attractive aromas of fleshy white peach. Great for roast chicken. 4.4/5 Chardonnay food pairings: mushroom risotto, poached salmon, parmesan popcorn.

|Sourcing grapes from two premium Chardonnay vineyards, the Sundial vineyard and our own Naramata estate, allows for flexibility in blending a championship wine and contributes spiciness and expressive fruit flavours. Partial malolactic fermentation delivers a hint of creamy texture. |
An ideal growing season for Chardonnay in the Okanagan Valley has created a pastry shop in the nose with hints of fresh bread, baked apple, nutmeg and fig. The palate rewards us with caramel, stone fruits and honey.
One of our signature techniques in the creation of our Chardonnay is the weekly batonnage we employ from December through May. Frequently disturbing the lees imparts more flavour complexity as the yeast cells break down. This gives the Chardonnay a beautifully elegant mouthfeel.
