Meyer Family 2022 Stevens Block Chardonnay 750ml
Expect a little Chris Carson magic, pitching crunchy, salted green apples with a hint of toasted baguette, all with a rush of stones and minerality. Lemon, lime, citrus dominates the mid-palate and finish, which is long, complex, and fun to savour. So much is packed into this wine from a unique piece of dirt in Narmata. If Meyer can do this, indeed, others should adopt the style. This is where the money is if that helps motivate your team. Impressive chardonnay you can drink or hold. Steven's Block is the steepest of the four acres planted on Naramata's Old Main Road vineyard in 2006, with clones 4 and 5 in silt over clay loams. Grapes were whole cluster pressed and fermented long and cool over six weeks in stainless before moving to older French barrels for MLF and ten months's rest. Back up the truck.
