Fresh, texture, nutty.
Clos du Soleil is an organic winery located in the Similkameen Valley, they make minimal intervention wines with elegance. The Winemaker's Series consist of wines made to highlight varieties outside of Clos du Soleil's normal portfolio.
The estate La Cote Vineyard is in transition to organic and this Chardonnay is best described as fresh. It was fermented in French oak; it was aged on lees in oak for 8 months (no ML) with occasional stirring and was filtered just prior to bottling.
It has nutty+buttery notes woven with melon, lemon, pineapple, yellow apples and toasted spice aromas. The palate is fresh with just a suggestion of creamy fruit, primarily you'll taste lemon, spice and roasted nuts. Leaner than I recall from last year with some phenolic texture on the finish.
