Our 2016 Chardonnay Reserve has been listed as the number one wine in the Top 10 Chardonnays to receive Gold medals at the recent 2018 Chardonnay du Monde Awards.
Now in its 25th year, the prestigious Chardonnay du Monde Awards recognize the world's best Chardonnays as evaluated by a panel comprised of 300 international experts. This year, 679 wines from 39 countries were tasted by the judges.
When asked about this award-winning wine, our winemaker Alison Moyes states: "We grow and craft our Chardonnay to be a direct reflection of our exceptional region, climate and soils here in Okanagan Falls. This, in combination with years of dedication and vision for this grape variety specifically, has culminated into something extraordinarily special, world class and distinctively Okanagan."
The award-winning 2016 Chardonnay Reserve features layered aromas of toasted almond, pear and peach with a subtle whisper of allspice. Complex yet well-balanced, the wine captures flavours of lime zest, pineapple, lemon curd and intense minerality, and leaves a lingering finish on the palate. Ideal pairings include roasted chicken, pork loin, cheese plates, creamy pasta and risotto with butter-basted scallops. The wine will be available for purchase in April to Liquidity's Equity Tasting Club members, followed by Club Liquidity members ($42, plus tax); it will also be available in the winery tasting room in July (while supplies last).
