About the Winery
Meyer Family Vineyards
Meyer Family Vineyards have been crafting wines in the Okanagan Valley since 2006. Voted one of the top wineries in Canada, they focus on small lot productions of Chardonnay and Pinot Noir drawing heavily from Burgundian influences.
Following a career in the investment business and raising two young girls, Jak Meyer and Janice Stevens-Meyer decided to completely change directions and get into the wine business. They set out to establish themselves as one of BC’s top wineries focusing on small lot premium Chardonnay and Pinot Noir. Surrounded by an experienced team of professionals in the vineyards and in the winery, Meyer Family Vineyards has become a highly awarded and bench mark producer, showing the incredible quality and terroir of BC wines.

This is classy chardonnay from Jak Meyer; whose wines have been turning heads for quite a few years now, especially those of the judges at the WineAlign National Wine Awards. The 2018 McLean Creek bottling from Okanagan Falls is beautifully bright and appealingly spartan, with minimal oak and lees influence in favour of sharp citrus, peach stones and apple blossom flavours in a genuine cool climate idiom. But it's really the palate that shines with its taut acids and laser sharp delineation, not to mention the impressively lingering finish. Top notch, and top value, classy wine. Drink or hold into the mid-late-'20s.

So antithetical and apposite to Gordon A. Smith again and consistently so. Once again it is sun and the soaking up of that warmth that brings luxe, calme et volupté with a side salad of crunchy bits from the sand and gravel in Okanagan Falls loams at (320-380m) of altitude. If surprise was the order in 2017 then further awe comes from 2018 with a side dish of wonder. This is fascinating chardonnay with a tincture running through like grated tuber juice as if by ginger, turmeric, lotus and taro. Drink 2021-2027. Tasted April 2020.
