The 2017 Canyonview Chardonnay from Giant Head showcases a very different style than the 2016, more focused on the purity, minerality and terroir expression of the very special and sought-after Canyonview Vineyard. This Chardonnay is a beautiful picture of the extreme potential of the Canyonview and Summerland terroir. This particular vintage needs time to breathe and decanting to showcase it’s all-around potential. This wine takes time to open, but when it does…watch out! This is pristine, mouth-watering, and built to last. Lemon meringue, chamomile, ginger, and yellow apricots draw you in on the nose. The flavours include dry lemon, peach, flinty minerality, jasmine, and apple crisp. A light caramel helps enhance the finish. The various components of this wine become more evident and come together after the mid-palate: the minerality, the influence of the lees, the well-integrated French Oak barrels, all lifted by a very bright acidity to give you an extreme complexity on the back-palate. In this wine, the vivacity of the Okanagan acidity prevails over the oak profile. The mid and back palate is where this wine becomes very special to me and the main reason it is at 93 points. This tells me that there is much more here to discover, for those patient enough to hold on to it for another five years. (CWC, 03/03/22). 200 cases made.
