Township 7 Vineyards & Winery 2016 Unoaked Chardonnay, Okanagan Valley, $18

By on September 15, 2017

Hidden Terrace, a young site near iconic McIntyre Bluff in British Columbia’s South Okanagan Valley, has been contributor to standout winemaker Howard Soon, who recently retired from Sandhill. Township 7 pulled from here as well as its own site on the Naramata Bench for a fun and clean Chardonnay. Aromas of peach, banana taffy and orange Creamsicle make their way to the palate, where there’s pleasing weight with notes of cantaloupe and a finishing lick of pineapple. Suggested pairings include seafood such as fresh oysters, creamy pasta dishes or goat cheese.
