Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
The second vintage of Hester Creek’s oak-aged Chardonnay is an elegant, beautifully textured wine that offers aromas of honey, citrus and a hint of smoke. Big, rich mouthfeel opens into bright citrus flavours framed by caramel and buttery notes. This is a true expression of Chardonnay from the Golden Mile Bench.
Vineyard Notes
Hester Creek Estate Winery has its roots deep in B.C., with vines first planted in the alluvial soil of the Golden Mile Bench in 1968. Today, our estate vineyard produces wines that are a lively, intensely flavoured expression of this place we call home.
Production Notes
A record-breaking summer with heat that continued well into the fall was tempered in the vineyard with controlled drip irrigation and precision viticulture. To maximize ripeness, flavour and quality, the vineyard team reduced the crop by 50%. The result was ripe, rich Chardonnay clusters, harvested by hand.
Winemaker Notes
After hand-harvesting and gentle pneumatic pressing, this 100% estate-grown Chardonnay was fermented on specially selected yeasts before undergoing full malolactic fermentation. Selected small lots were then placed sur lie in 75% French and 25% American oak before being bottled in August of 2014.
Food Pairing Notes
This food-friendly stunner pairs perfectly with creamy pasta dishes or with west coast seafood such as sablefish. Take it up a notch by adding smoked tomatoes to the food pairing.
