More of a mineral style in my opinion but pleasant enough.

Smoky oak flavours with noticeable minerality. A good value at under $20.

The balance and complexity are great at this price. The oak is obvious but not overwhelming and indeed nicely integrated with the minerality and fruit. Was a fantastic accompaniment to my first summer BBQ of the season.

Medium straw in colour and medium intense nose.

Always nice to have a good quality Ontario Chardonnay that’s under $20.

Positives: This is a delicate Chard which has several layers featuring light oak, lemon, grapefruit, peat, green apple, wood smoke, limestone and hints of caramel. Medium body, with good acidity and a long length.

Negatives: A little sour on the finish.

Drink now or over the next 2 years on its own or pair it with seared scallops wrapped in bacon served on a bed of wilted spinach with candy tomatoes (my wife’s great recipe).

Tasted: 19 April 13
