CheckMate 2017 Fool's Mate Chardonnay (Okanagan Valley)

This is a five-vineyard blend, and the fermentation and aging of the various lots includes one in foudre and one in concrete egg, the rest in barrels. The concrete component shows clearly, with a drying minerality. The apple and melon fruit is compact and has a metallic streak. Give this time to unpack a bit and the flavors will expand and lengthen. Paul Gregutt
