CheckMate 2016 Queen's Advantage Chardonnay (Golden Mile Bench)

This single-vineyard selection is from what are believed to be BC's oldest Chardonnay vines, planted in the early 1970s. Almost entirely fermented with wild yeasts, it remains young, leesy and still a bit yeasty in the nose. Fresh apple, white melon and cucumber fruits are balanced and buoyed with moderate acidity. Aging 16 months in half new French oak barrels adds a toasty note. Tuck this away another year or two and it should continue to improve. Paul Gregutt
