Reviews and Ratings

Jennifer Havers - WSET Level 3 rated this wine as 91/100 with the following review:

Gorgeous! Aromas of pear, golden apple, pineapple, and a hint of toffee. Full bodied with a luscious smooth texture, fruit on the palate is vibrant and fresh. Acidity is medium and well balanced. Slight honeyed caramel notes on the finish. Enjoy with roasted chicken, or rich, creamy seafood dishes.
From Margaret's Bench, Okanagan Valley, British Columbia, Culmina, Dilemma Chardonnay 2018 is rich and sensuous with creamy, leesy, ripe yellow apple, toasted nut and subtle baking spice flavours lingering on the palate and balanced with a zesty acidity. Elegant and well done. Pair with grilled chicken and seafood dishes. - Community Wine Reviews
