Description
This comes from the Okanagan outpost of one of the leading lights of Canadian winemaking: the one-and-only Ann Sperling (director of winemaking and viticulture at Southbrook in Ontario). Beppi Crosariol (The Globe and Mail, July 10, 2017) awarded the 2015 version of this wine a rating of 91 points, calling it '... medium-bodied, tight and tense with acidity, just enough to accentuate the apple-, pear- and peach-like fruit ...' and a '... Genuinely cool chardonnay.' You can expect the 2016 to reflect similar quality and traits.
Tasting Notes
This barrel-fermented wine is made with clone 528 Chardonnay from a high-altitude block in the Sperling vineyard. 'I wanted to retain acidity, so we harvested it somewhere around 21 Brix, maybe 21 ½,' Ann explains. 'At that point, there still is eight or nine grams of acid. And I am working in 500 litre puncheons.' Think of Chablis with this wine. The oak is subtle on the nose and palate. The citrus and apple flavours are kept bright by the acidity. The finish lingers. Score - 91. (John Schreiner, johnschreiner.blogspot.com, Feb. 20, 2017)
