Little Engine Silver Chardonnay 2015

Naramata Bench, Okanagan Valley, British Columbia, CanadaThis is a generous chardonnay reflective of the warm 2015 vintage. It is whole-cluster pressed, settled and fermented in a mix of stainless and new and older French barrels before resting in oak for six months with regular battonage. All that intervention shows up in the wine that is warm and rich with vanillin oak sheen. The attack is awash in vanilla, pear, ripe yellow apple, lemon curd with a riff of river stones and potent ginger spicing that finishes with a bright, lemon peel note. A fresher version of the Gold that you can pour now with butter poached fish or lobster.Tasted: 12 June 2017Tasted by: Treve Ring & Anthony GismondiPrices: BC 30.00 winery direct Producer: Little Engine WinesDistributors: Winery Direct
