Vintage & Viticulture

A slow start to the season with a cool spring but summer brought hot dry weather perfect for grape growing. Mother Nature however turned the tables on winemakers in Ontario with a wet humid fall. Harvest was quick in an effort to pick fruit before rains affected the quality of grapes.

Winemaker’s Notes

The Chardonnay juice was 100 % stainless steel fermented and aged. This wine shows some true varietal aromas and flavours without the influence of oak or malolactic fermentation. This gives the wine its fruity character and fresh bouquet.

Tasting Notes

Citrus and apple aromas promise a bright and lively wine. Refreshes the palate with flavours of apple, pear, peach and a lemony twist. Pair with any white fish, roast chicken, scallop and shrimp dishes. Also will complement pasta primavera or a summer salad.
