What a treat. Full-bodied, round and silky, this sublimely balanced white offers ripe pineapple, peach, citrus, cold butter and vanilla characters, with fresh acidity on the harmonious finish. Expertly crafted, it was mainly aged in stainless steel for freshness, with 20 per cent of the juice matured in French oak for three months to add rounded mellowness. And there are dabs of viognier and muscat mixed in with the chardonnay for aromatic verve. Available in British Columbia liquor stores and through the winery, poplargrove.ca.
