2020 Chardonnay Clone 95
Clone 95 from Duncan Vineyard on the Naramata Bench.
The grapes are hand harvested and whole bunch pressed, then fermented and aged in French oak barrels for 10 months, using a combination of standard barrels and puncheons. 25% goes into new oak & partial malolactic fermentation occurs.
Premium Chardonnay made from prized blocks of low yielding clone 95, a superior clone originating from the Côte d’Or, France. The nose expresses pronounced aromas of tropical fruit, citrus, and toasted almond. The mouthfeel is rich and textured yet fresh at the same time. Flavours of baked apple, preserved lemon, crème brûlée, and biscotti dance on the palate.
Enjoy now or cellar for 3 to 5 years.
