SOAHC Estate Wines Chardonnay 2014
Kootenay River Valley, British Columbia, Canada
A marked improvement over the 2013 vintage, this pioneering biodynamic producer from the Southern Kootenays seems to be finding its rhythm (lunar and otherwise). A tight, energetic chardonnay with green apple, lemon and stone aromas. The green apple and lemon pith return on the crisp palate, where they are joined by gentle hazelnut and waves of caramel. Acidity is bright and stony spiced, and finishes with herbal meadow flowers. Best appreciated when the wine has a chance to warm a bit and breathe, especially paired with scallops or clams.
