Micro Lot Series
Ok. We are GUSHING about this new wine in our portfolio! We've actually been pretty excited since about, oh, October 10th 2019, when we harvested what was a sensational small crop of Chardonnay. Barrel fermented in 25% new French oak, and full malolactic fermentation while stirring... a lot of love and care has gone into growing and crafting this wine. Brett, who is particularly passionate about Chardonnay, carefully managed this Micro Lot and stirred lees daily for 16 weeks! All that lovely lees contact created a beautifully textured, opulent expression of Similkameen terroir.
On the nose you'll discover deep tropical notes (think papaya and guava) along with citrus and wet stone. The palate delivers delightful creaminess, a touch of butter (but not "oaky" at all), and minerality for DAYS. A fellow local wine enthusiast tasted this recently, and she described it as "it tastes like floating the Similkameen River!". Those of you who know, know.
