Time Estate Winery Chardonnay 2017

Okanagan Valley, British Columbia, Canada
8 days ago

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.

13.3% Alcohol. Aromas of vanilla, tropical fruit salad and caramel. On the palate Meyer lemon, ripe pear and apple and buttery toasted oak. A well-rounded mouthfeel with plenty of acid to cut through the butter! Terrific long finish.

A classic Chardonnay with aromas of green apple, lemon rind and a touch of fresh oyster shell. Flavours of ripe apple and Meyer lemon with just a hint of oak. Super mouthfeel with well-balanced acid. A light crisp chardonnay that will really hit its stride on a hot BC day. Amazing wine for only 6-year-old vines...that's Kelowna wine country for you!
