Township 7 Chardonnay
A very unique and enjoyable Chardonnay. Crisp with a great balance of acidity.
An ideal growing season for Chardonnay in the Okanagan Valley has created a pastry shop for the nose with hints of fresh bread, baked apple, nutmeg and fig.The palate rewards us with caramel, stone fruits and honey.
A slow start to the growing season in 2010 saw a late but good fruit set. The unseasonably cool summer was free of heat spikes with a dry and sunny autumn enabling a consistent and even ripening period as harvest approached.
One of our signature techniques in the creation of our Chardonnay is the weekly batonnage we employ from December through May. Frequently disturbing the lees imparts more flavour complexity as the yeast cells break down. This gives the Chardonnay a beautifully elegant mouthfeel. Aged in French and American oak. We anticipate good cellaring potential through 2015.
Food Pairing Notes
Enjoy with mushroom risotto, poached salmon or Parmesan popcorn.
