Chardonnay, Losthorn Vineyard, Lock and Worth Winery, Naramata, BC, 2018, 11.7% abv., C$30

Zowie!  Pow!  Wow!

From grapes planted in 1995 at Losthorn Vineyard in Okanagan Falls, this Chardonnay is electric.  Whole cluster pressed, it’s an unfined and unfiltered, charged up, bona fide beauty.

A shade of pale lemon gold on the eyes, the nose and palate offer fresh Anjou pear, yellow apple, Meyer lemon, brioche and slate.

Absolutely mouth-watering acidity, a medium body, and great finish round out this clean and precise wine.

Perfect with many dishes, we paired it with pan fried oysters and lemon wedges with risotto.

Apparently this was Matt Sherlock & Ross Hackworth’s first attempt at Chardonnay.  Please, don’t let it be the last!
