"En Famille" Reserve Chardonnay, 2016

Shipped and sold by JoieFarm

2016 Okanagan Valley 750 mL, 12.9% ALC/VOL

Availability: Sold out

Chardonnay Musqué


Tasting Note: Aromas of honeydew melons, nut skin and drawn butter. Flavours of ripe spartan apple, pineapple and briney oyster flavours move into juicy finish with precise acidity to balance the intensity of ripeness in a warm, early vintage. The texture of this wine is balanced with precise natural acidity and savoury freshness. It is sophisticated and juicy.

Food Pairing: Oysters, scallops, miso-rubbed black cod, corn, and bacon are favourites of ours to be enjoyed with this wine.

Our “En Famille” Reserve Chardonnay is a premium vineyard selection from our most prized block at our Joie-run old-vine chardonnay vineyard site on the Skaha Bluff and the Plein de Vie vineyard on the Naramata Bench, blended to create a balanced chardonnay that is both intensely ripe, mouth wateringly-fresh and savoury all at once. The 2016 vintage is the result of dynamic and reactive canopy work and multiple picks during an early, hot vintage. This wine is barrel-fermented with the primary native yeast and spontaneous malolactic fermentations happening in a blend of premium French barriques and puncheons with only a judicious amount of new oak used. The mouthfeel and overall length are enhanced by extended lees contact and the monthly bâtonnage that lends savoury complexity and texture to this wine.
