Backyard Vineyards 2017 Chardonnay, British Columbia, $22

By on September 4, 2018

Niagara native James Cambridge came to Backyard Vineyards in Langley, B.C., with a resume that includes a number of the Okanagan Valley premier producers. Here, he’s crafted a Chardonnay that features aromas of apple and citrus, plus flavors of sweet apple, lime, pineapple and mango. Its crisp acidity sweeps away a bare hint of residual sugar, and the two elements combine for a delicious, rounded finish. This won a gold medal at the sixth annual Cascadia International Wine Competition.
