Natalie's Score: 89/100

This fresh, crisp BC white wine made from Chardonnay grapes and is unoaked, thus the reference to "Not so knotty" (wood). Reminds me more of fresh linens on a spring day than Dirty Laundry with aromas of lime and lemon zest. Pair with crossing off the last item on your to-do list.

Chardonnay food pairings: stuffed chicken roasted, beef bourguignon, pork tenderloin, ravioli served in an Alfredo sauce.

Remarkable Roast Chicken Wine

Reviews and Ratings

Jane Staples - Certified Sommelier rated this wine as 91/100 with the following review:

From BC's Okanagan Valley, a Chardonnay with a mild nose of pretty tropical fruit notes. The palate shows tropical guava, pineapple and passionfruit with lemon/lime and touch of vanilla. Dry with good acidity and a long tropical fruit finish.
Matt Steeves - Certified Sommelier rated this wine as 88/100 with the following review:

A clean and refreshing unoaked Chardonnay from the infamous Dirty Laundry winery in beautiful Summerland, BC. Golden apple, and sweet corn on the palate, this a lovely wine to enjoy with a friend on the patio in the summer sun. No need to leave it piled on the floor for 2-3 years, I recommend enjoying it now. Dirty Laundry Winery has a great story of some sketchy behaviour in that beautiful town from days gone by. A wonderful winery to visit. Highly recommended. Gold Medal winner at the 2015 All Canadian Wine Championships. Tasted August 2015. 88+ points. Matt Steeves - www.quercusvino.ca
This BC white wine won a Gold Medal at the 2015 All Canadian Wine Championships. During the gold rush era, the town laundry seemed innocent enough, according to the back label. Little did anyone know about the naughty business that went on behind closed doors in Summerland as everyone kept that hush hush. - Community Wine Reviews
