Meyer, Okanagan Valley Chardonnay, 2012


Meyer makes a host of upper-echelon bottles and then a second tier of affordable wines.  This falls into the latter.  But it’s lovely all the same.  Fresh, refreshing, flinty, non-oaked, lively and versatile.  The bottle claims it will improve to 2016.  Shurly shome mishtake?  This lacks a deep nose (or, put another way, has scant bouquet in the glass) and tends toward the generic in chardonnays but if you could find it (and you probably can’t, that’s the way with BC wines) it would be a wonderful weekday standby at the price.002

 

Price: $20 at the vineyard.

 

Market Liquidity: A house wine for the house.
