Mission Hill Chardonnay Reserve 2006

This is a very good Chard. It has a lovely bit of butteryness, not over the top though. Clearly secondary fermentation has been done. Some oak is present and it has a creamyness to it. The wine was left in contact with the lees for 8 months Autolysis

This wine has a nice medium to long finish. I picked up a very slight green flavor off the wine. This is a good wine as long as you like this style of Chard. This is more of a Californian style Chard. Yummy.

This is a VQA wine Made in: British Columbia, Canada By: Mission Hill Vineyards Inc. Release Date: Oct 11, 2008. From one of BC’s most beautiful wineries, comes this elegant, flavourful wine. Winemaker John Simes, working with the blessings of visionary owner Anthony von Mandl, has created a wine loaded with peach, tropical fruit (pineapple and banana), floral, butterscotch and toasty oak aromas. It’s medium full-bodied with a creamy texture leading to a long finish. An inspired match for pan-seared chicken breast with rosemary and garlic.
