Critic's Rating 87 pts
Secrest Mountain Vineyard is a 50-acre site, home to a 38-acre (15ha) vineyard situated on a flat south-west facing bench in a high mountain setting 487 meters (1,600ft) above sea level. This cool site has flat alluvial soils studded with coarse gravel and sandy loam with limestone layers. From 2010-2021, it has been farmed under the direction of Okanagan Crush Pad and a conversion to organic farming practices was started in 2014.

The wine was whole bunch pressed for gentle juice recovery and quality, the natural yeast fermented wine was then aged in concrete tanks and large puncheons for 10 months before bottling.

The Chardonnay delivers a clean fruit driven style backed by a creamy, textured mouthfeel framed with mouth watering acidity.

Haywire Chardonnay Secrest Mountain Vineyard 2019
Okanagan Valley, British Columbia, Canada

The current edition of Seacrest Chardonnay is amazingly creamy and soft on the entry and packed with sweet red apple. It was fermented in concrete which also adds to its expansive palate, and aged in several different vessels, including concrete eggs and neutral puncheons. It is fully ready to drink, preferably with lightly spicy menu items.

TASTED: 25 MAY 2021
