2012 Library Reserve Chardonnay
Noble Ridge is an estate vineyard and winery located in the Okanagan Valley. All work is done by hand on site by a team of dedicated workers who strive to create exceptional wine that reflects its noble namesake.
Notes of apple, pineapple, mango and citrus are complimented by hints of toasted bread and toffee! A nice acidity makes for a clean, balanced finish. You will find this medium bodied Chardonnay to have a smooth, velvety mouthfeel and good structure.
