Mirabel Vineyards Releases Debut Chardonnay

 

The much-anticipated Mirabel Chardonnay makes its debut entrance just in time for fall

 

Kelowna’s Mirabel Vineyards is proud to announce the release of its first-ever Chardonnay ($40.00 SRP), made from whole bunch pressed Naramata Chardonnay grapes. Restaurants can pre-order this wine through the order desk via email or phone 250.494.4445 ext 2.

The grapes were hand-harvested on October 26, 2016. Full malolactic fermentation took place with 11 months lees ageing. A minimal intervention approach to this wine allows the fruit to shine and dictate the end flavour profile. Little handling means this wine was not ­stabilized, therefore harmless tartrates, or “wine diamonds” are possible.

 

With only 185 cases produced, this Chardonnay joins Mirabel Vineyards’ highly-acclaimed 2015 Pinot Noir (237 cases produced) and its 2016 saignée-method Rosé of Pinot Noir (100 cases produced). Its Pinot Noir had critics talking, with John Schreiner giving this wine a monstrous score of 95 points and also named one of 10 Wines That Tell The Future: Visionaries From The Okanagan Valley in Forbes Magazine.

 

Mirabel Vineyards will be featured at the following event:
