Fresh and fruity with notes of honeysuckle, wild flowers, dry hay and and lemon supported by a touch of vanilla.

$24.95

TASTING NOTES

Fresh and fruity with notes of honeysuckle, wild flowers, dry hay and and lemon supported by a touch of vanilla from the oak. Medium-bodied on the palate with flavours of pineapple, yellow apple and creamed lemon honey. The finish is long with savoury notes refreshing the palate.

Serve chilled with rich seafood such as seared scallops with brown butter. Let the glass warm up a bit for further complexities to develop.

WINEMAKING NOTES

The grapes for our Chardonnay 2018 come from select vineyards located in the Niagara Peninsula appellation. They were harvested in late September and immediately full-cluster pressed, then fermented and aged in French oak barrels of a variety of sizes (225L, 400L and 500L) and a variety of ages, averaging 10% new oak. After rigorous tasting, Jean-Pierre Colas decided on the final blend and bottled the wine in early July 2019 following light fining and filtration.
