2015 Chardonnay

In Stock


The Wine

Always a crowd favourite, half of this Chardonnay was fermented in stainless steel for aromatic purity and the other half in French oak to build texture and complexity. The aromatics are lively in this dry, medium bodied Chardonnay. Pear, quince (this is what the Owl and the Pussycat dined on when they went to sea!) and a little bit of oak catch you on the nose. The mouthfeel is soft and viscous, with wet stone, subtle toffee and lemon zest on the palate.

An early budbreak, followed by one of the hottest years in BC history, led to the earliest recorded grape harvest. We began picking some of our grapes in August, a full month ahead of schedule. 2015 was all about trying to slow things down. Luckily, our cool South Thompson nights helped us to retain plenty of acidity and freshness in our white wines. Meanwhile, the intense heat created some of the most concentrated and deeply coloured red wines we have ever produced.
