New - 2020 Silver Chardonnay

New - 2020 Silver Chardonnay

The 2020 Silver Chardonnay is floral and fruit forward with notes of tangerine, melon and stonefruits on the nose.  The palate is fresh but intriguing with a silky texture, tropical touches of pineapple and nectarine.  The finish is bright and crisp with lingering hints of white pepper.

Best enjoyed upon release through 2025 under ideal cellaring conditions.

Wine Profile
Vineyard Notes
Our Chardonnay consists of grapes harvested from 4 vineyards picked on a range of picking dates, late September to mid October, to yield a complexity of flavours and acidity. The fruit is solely from our Estate vineyards on the Naramata Bench. Different leaf removal strategies were employed to give a variety of bunch exposure times and subsequent flavour development. Crop levels were kept low at 3.5 tons per acre.
Production Notes
Our Estate Chardonnay blocks were hand harvested and either whole cluster pressed or pressed after overnight skin contact, settled and fermented in stainless steel tanks and a variety of seasoned French oak barrels. Fermentations were long and cool to preserve aromatics. A variety of yeasts were used to encourage complexity of flavours.
Winemaker Notes
The final blend includes 50% barrel fermented (no new oak) and matured on lees for 8 months with batonnage for palate development.
