TASTING NOTES

Our 2018 June’s Vineyard Chardonnay has a nose of lemon and cream with light notes of minerality and fresh herbs. On the palate it is dry with refreshing acidity, citrus flavours and a creamy texture, and a savory, mineral-tinged finish. Extremely versatile, happily paired with everything from white fleshed fish and shell fish, to anything deep-fried as well as salads and lighter fare. Serve well chilled.

 

WINEMAKING NOTES

The Chardonnay from June’s Vineyard has developed a consistent mineral-driven personality that is best coaxed out by careful manual harvesting, full bunch pressing and fermentation and aging in 100% stainless steel, with full malolactic fermentation. 2018 was a small harvest after rigorous selection in the vineyard and sorting table. Following fermentation, the wine was kept in contact with its fine lees for 6 months prior to bottling in spring 2019, following light fining and filtration.

“This single-vineyard Chardonnay, named after June Mann, who along with husband John, are co-owners of 13th Street (with Doug and Karen Whitty), has always imparted a rich mineral component in the wine. It’s on full display here without any oak aging, only lees contact (6 months) and light fining and filtration. Colas calls this “old school” Chardonnay with a nod to Chablis, his roots, with only stainless steel aging and a unique nose of pear, creamy notes, apple skin and profound minerality and lemon. The lees aging gives this wine its creamy profile on the palate with lovely pear, bin apple, savoury notes, minerality and mouth-watering acidity on the finish.”
