From the Sperling family's historic and limestone-laced Kelowna vineyard, this chardonnay is fermented and aged in large-format French oak barrels, the structure of which is felt on the medium-plus, flint-slicked palate. We love the Flake salts throughout what is a savoury white, tinged with white asparagus, white peach, flaxen lees and wafts of Meyer lemon blossom on a bed of French cream. The acidity is just enough to counter the weight and ripeness, leaving a lingering hum in the mouth. Lovely depth and complexity, more reminiscent of the Ontario chardonnay style, but this it feels firmly Okanagan. Halibut and a fresh fruit salsa would be affine match.
