The 2016 Canyonview Chardonnay was the first vintage of Canyonview wines, and the last Chardonnay made with the help of legendary Napa winemaker Krimo Souilah. Krimo’s style of winemaking is very evident in this vintage, especially when you compare it with the 2017 vintage, even though the grape source is the same coveted Canyonview Vineyard. The 2016 is an oaky, Napa Valley style of Chardonnay, but with the taste and feel of Okanagan’s signature acidity. The very exuberant nose displays toasty oak, spices like cloves and cinnamon, marzipan and almond paste, surrounded by apple and citrus. The palate explodes out of the gate with a dense and concentrated offering of grilled pineapple, yellow baked apple, yellow plum, apricot, caramel and butterscotch. This wine is tropical and oaky, but perfectly built and integrated. The soft texture is spectacular - as is the very long, spicy and impressive finish. This wine now has every component showing in the right places and makes for a unique experience that you will remember.
