2018 Chardonnay Clone 95
Clone 95 from Duncan Vineyard on the Naramata Bench & Gentleman Farmer Vineyard in SE Kelowna.
The grapes are hand harvested and whole bunch pressed. Fermented and aged in French oak barrels for 10 months, using a combination of standard barrels and puncheons. 40% new oak & partial malolactic fermentation.
Premium Chardonnay made from prized blocks of low yielding clone 95, a superior clone originating from the Côte d’Or, France. Bold aromas of ripe stone fruit, preserved lemon, and butterscotch. Bright acidity and wet stone brush the palate, then complimented with a creamy finish and lingering notes of brazil nut and brioche.
Enjoy now or cellar 3 to 5 years.
