Tasted the 2011 vintage. This incorporates a little bit of everything and it's very balanced, made with quality fruit and oak. Citrus, tropical, vanilla, caramel, oak...i prefer my chards a little creamier with more butter mineral notes - but for this price point...i'm not complaining. Pretty amazing stuff for the price.

Bright gold in colour with medium+ intensity on the nose.
Positives: The nose makes this wine feel like a $50 chard. It shows notes of medium toasted oak, buttery, vanilla, lemon meringue pie, caramel covered apples & popcorn. The taste feels like an under $20 chard with more citric & tart notes of lemon rind, lime, green apples, unripe pineapple, light toasted oak & limestone. Medium body with high acidity & medium+ length.
Negatives: A little tart on the taste.
Interested Thing: LCBO usually has this wine on sale a couple of times a year.
Drink now & pair it with snow crab & drawn butter
