2006 Golden Mile Cellars Chardonnay, Luckhurst Family Vineyards

OK, so I went up to the Okanagan the weekend before last with the intention of writing up the trip… and I will. I’ve just been so damned busy that I haven’t gotten around to it. What I have done is drink some of the wine I brought back, especially some of the case I picked up at Wild Goose.

Tonight I’m sipping a 2006 Chardonnay from Golden Mile Cellars, which is located between Oliver and Osoyoos… and you know what? This is tasty stuff.

Now, I’ll be the first to admit that I love the New World slutty Chardonnays… all tropical pineapple and citrus fruit with almond and caramel on both the nose and the flavours. Well, this is the best example of that type of Chardonnay I’ve tasted from BC to this point… and at $19.99. It’s tasty. I really like it.

I had this tonight with some grilled salmon and it went swimmingly (swimmingly… get it? cheesy). Seriously though folks… I’ll be here all week. Drive safe, try the salmon and buy this wine if you can find it

$19.99 at the winery.

4 stars
