A full-bodied, bright, fresh, oaked Chardonnay, with flavours of melon, lemon and pineapple, a smooth texture, nutty oak and zesty citrus acidity. It was one of the wines Tanners showed on its 'new discoveries' table and comes from a very successful vintage for Canada's Okanagan Valley. Half the wine was fermented in barrels and half in tank, before ageing in oak (mostly French), 63% of it new, for nine months.
Light lemon yellow, bright floral, white summer fruits on the nose, moving to broader more exotic fruit on the palate, oak well-blended in to add texture, balancing acidity, perhaps on the rich side. 88/100.
