2017 Estate Bottled Chardonnay

Tasting Note

This Chardonnay has expressive aromas of candied lemon, pineapple, yellow apple and a hint of spice.
The citrus fruit notes shine on the palate which also has incredible texture and weight. The richness of this wine is balanced out by a fresh acidity, leading to an elegant and well-balanced finish.

Food Pairings

This Chardonnay is very versatile with a variety of different dishes. It is full-bodied enough to stand-up to rich dishes such as Lobster, Scallops and pasta dishes with a white creamy sauce. It also pairs well with classics like Roasted Chicken, Salmon and Pork Tenderloin.

Winemaking Notes

Hand picked fruit from our vineyard on the Beamsville Bench from a plot of vines planted in 2009 were gently pressed. Free run juice was run to barrel where it slowly fermented over the course of several weeks without any additions. After fermentation the wines remained on their lees with little stirring of the lees.The final barrel selection was made after aging for seven months in barrel, all French oak with just 12% of the barrels being new oak. Racked, filtered and bottled in the summer of 2018.
