Anthony Gismondi on Wine
Black Hills Chardonnay

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.
