Kurtis Kolt – The Georgia Straight – March 2017
A departure from the Un-Oaked Chardonnay above, the “En Famille” take on the grape is fermented with native yeast and carries some enjoyable lifted oak, perfectly balancing all the wine’s orchard fruit. All the pears are here, too: Bosc! Anjou! Bartlett! Each one of them is perfectly ripe yet still fresh, with juicy acidity. A stunning example of how elegant Okanagan Chardonnay can be, I think it’s the best one she has made to date.
