Tantalus Juveniles Chardonnay 2016

Okanagan Valley, British Columbia, CanadaThis is young vine (four years), single vineyard, estate chardonnay, hence the name Juveniles. Wild fermented, this was raised in stainless and neutral barrels. Bright lemon, cool cream, tight spice and a light smoked stone define this medium bodied wine, swept up at the finish with a tight twist. Impressively structured, juicy and drinkable - without being dumbed down - this is what you drink now while you lay your seriously age-worthy Chardy down. Well done Tantalus (and this price!)Tasted: 12 July 2017Tasted by: Prices: BC 17.30 winery direct, private wine shops Producer: Tantalus VineyardsDistributors: The Wine Syndicate
