Dirty Laundry 2007 Chardonnay Unoaked

Like many people, I guess, I went through a Chardonnay kick a few years back. The excessive oaking eventually got to me. Now, it seems, there is a trend towards producing unoaked Chardonnays.

This one is pale clear silver, with a light citrus-pinapple grassy nose. Nice subtle palate of Okanagan fruit, apple-lemon, and a distinctive liquorice note on the nice long finish. Very nice! 13.4% alcohol. CAD$22.90 at Crosstown. See Dirty Laundy Vineyard, which is becoming one of my British Columbia favourites.
