Description

A beautiful expression of Chardonnay, this wine was barrel fermented and aged in both French and American oak. We allowed the wine to go through 68% malolactic fermentation, to maintain the acidity and gain creaminess on the finish. Notes of soft apple mingle with flavours of ripe melon, pear and peach, framed by tones of vanilla, caramel, coconut and hazelnut. Enjoy now and over the next two years. Wonderful with seafood, cheeses or on its own.

Wine Writer’s Comment:

 

Quinta Ferreira’s vineyards are located in the Okanagan Valley’s renown Black Sage Bench, famous for producing outstanding grapes due to its desert climate, soils and growing conditions.

 

For this Chardonnay, winemaker Michael Ferreira allowed the wine to go through 68% malolactic fermentation so as to retain its acidity, yet bring out the richness and creaminess inherent in the wine. This wine is not your average Chardonnay, rather it’s reminiscent of some Italian white wine styles from the Piedmont region where the richness of texture, the butterscotch and baking spice, and distinctly nutty flavours are strong characteristics. Save this wine for Thanksgiving or Christmas and pair it with everything from roasted turkey and stuffing to desserts of the season.
