"The Other Way" 2017
100% Chardonnay grown at our Sideshow Hill VY, Naramata
These old (by Naramata standards - planted in 1989) vines continue to reward with intense aromatcs of pineapple wrapped in caramel from the kiss of 3 months in french oak. Acidity provides perfect counter balance to the barrel tannin. Natural fermentation quit just short of totally dry leaving a long finish punctuated by the caramel top note.
