Five different vineyard sites, five different locations,
each an expression of their soil and mesoclimate.

At CheckMate, everything is tended to by hand:
All the canopy management,
leaf-pulling and cluster-thinning is done manually
to ensure precision and gentleness.

2014 CheckMate Fool’s Mate Chardonnay

“The Okanagan Valley in British Columbia is shaping up nicely as a vinicultural region. Fool’s Mate is right up there with some of the best French whites, akin to Meursault, its generous toasty flavour giving way to a warm, nutty finish.”

Anthony Gismondi, Wine Writer, Critic & Judge

“This is a complex chardonnay project. I am not going to use the Burgundy word but there is a resemblance to the Old World style. That said, why not think of Checkmate as part of the Next World style and the Next Okanagan.”
