Reviews and Ratings

Craig Haynes - WSET3 FWS SWS IWS rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

The Juveniles is low alcohol, low oak, big aroma and big flavour.

The pretty and plentiful aromas in this hard harvested Chardonnay evoke crisp green apples, fresh citrus end especially lime in tangerine – fresh flowers and light minerality. I could admire this wine’s aroma for hours. On the flavour front, it is stacked with delicious citrus, apple and pear from sip to finish.

From British Columbia’s Okanagan Valley, this single vineyard Chardonnay feels super dry, dynamically refreshing, light bodied and pleasingly mouth coating. Enjoy.

Reviewed April 2022
Love this clean, crisp and vibrant Chardonnay made by Tantalus in the Okanagan Valley, British Columbia. Juveniles 2017 is concentrated lime and lemon zest with ripe yellow apple and flinty mineral flavours finishing zesty on the palate. Chill and enjoy on its own or pair with grilled lemon-Dijon chicken breasts. - Community Wine Reviews
