Julian scored this wine: 91/100
The grapes are from the Sundial Vineyard on the acclaimed Black Sage Bench. The Chardonnay was crafted by fermenting 1/3 in oak, ageing 1/3 in barrel for four months, with the remaining 1/3 fermented and aged in stainless steel. All oak barrels are medium toast with toasted heads and a combination of new and 1-year-old barrels.
This is a good age for an Okanagan Valley Chardonnay. It is still tasting extremely well. Aromas of baked apple, pineapple, lemon zest and tropical fruit. Flavours of pineapple, ripe apple, honeydew melon with a long buttery vanilla finish.
