Blue Mountain Reserve Chardonnay, 2013

Extremely good value and an incredible vintage.  Don’t get me wrong; it’s not Hamilton Russell or Rombauer.  But my gosh is it a good BC Chardonnay.  It has beautiful fruit texture, isn’t cloying, displays both a citrus lightness and serious, hearty, vino complexity.  The yeasty sur-lie dimension puts it miles ahead of the competition, but it isn’t too forward.  Minerality blends with the vine and although it’s not exactly harmonious it is unequivocally delicious.
