Black Hills Chardonnay 2016

Okanagan Valley, British Columbia, CanadaA welcome change over the supercharged 2015. There is much better fruit and oak balance here with a subtler hazelnut, peach and mango flavour profile. The lees are creamy but doesn’t dominate the flavour profile revealing fresher red apple notes with just a hint of baked pear on a very spicy finish. Lobster, fresh cracked crab and creamy brie all work here.
