2019 Painted Rock Chardonnay
REGION: Penticton, Skaha Lake - Okanagan Valley
BOTTLE SIZE: 750 mL
Our 2019 Chardonnay is a blend of four micro-harvests from our two Chardonnay estate blocks. Over 2 weeks we conducted these harvests to capture specific attributes in the fruit. 80% was aged 6 months in French oak, 44% new. The last harvest of 20% was aged in stainless steel. 29% of the wine underwent malolactic fermentation.
This process enabled us to embrace the beautiful bright acidity while building mouthfeel, complexity and aromatics. Aromas of fresh citrus and stone fruit with notes of butter, brioche and sea salt. The palate is dry with mouth-watering acidity and builds on the aromas with further favours of tropical fruit and minerality. Full on the palate with a clean, fresh finish.
