This is from Meyer's Old Main Road vineyard in Naramata. Each year the Tribute Chardonnay honours a Canadian cultural figure, in 2018 modernist painter Gordon Applebe Smith.The Old Main chardonnay always strikes a riper, richer note and no change here even in the cooler vintage. The nose billows with ripe peach fruit, peat, spice and vanilla from French oak. It has sense of fullness but the 2018 acidity runs neatly through to the end. Excellent length. Score - 93.
