Brisk, brazen, balanced.
Pioneering one of BC's emerging wine regions, Fort Berens (named after a trading post, which was located on their property some 150 years ago) is located Lillooet, BC in the Fraser Canyon. This vintage Chardy shows good balance; aromas of toasted hazelnuts, buttery croissants, lemon meringue and fine spice with a lifted core of yellow apples and mineral. It pretty much explodes onto your palate with butterscotch liqueur and pear compote. Deft use of oak, it's a nice combo of brazen and brisk, as the lively acidity keep it fresh.
