2017 Dilemma

Sourced entirely from Chardonnay vines planted on Margaret's Bench in 2011, Dilemma represents the difficult decision to deciding to rip out the old block of Chardonnay on Arise Bench. Showcasing mineral and spice aromas, Dilemma is framed by lovely oak, caramel, and butter flavours, a luscious body, and a long, fresh finish, creating a wine of outstanding finesse, beauty, elegance, and style.

APPELLATION
Okanagan Valley

VINEYARD SOURCE
100% estate grown Chardonnay from Margaret's Bench.

WINEMAKING
9 months sur lie aging in a combination of new (28%) and used (52%) French oak barrels, and stainless steel cask (20%).

TASTING NOTE
With a beautifully inviting bouquet of brioche, nougat, and a honeyed flower, Dilemma is round and lush while maintaining a balance of ripe fruit.  Culmina's terroir comes through, adding a complex nuance of leavening bread. The palate is filled with apricot and ripe orange mixed in with classic vanilla bean and warm butter to create a long and juicy finish.

FOOD PAIRING
Pumpkin agnolotti in a toasted hazelnut brown butter
