Very rich chardonnay. Full body, beautiful colour. The way chardonnay should be. It is an easy version for any consumer to understand the chardonnay and I always recommend it for people who don't know this type of wine. It has a nice amount of oak, richness, good flavours or butterscotch, vanilla, fruity notes (lemon, apple, even some tropical) . And good long finish. Terrific wine for the price.

Gold in colour with medium+ intense nose.

A good 2nd bottle to have on hand when you don't want to open something expensive.

Positives: A simple Chard that’s easy to drink featuring medium oak with a mild toasting, lemon meringue, smoky apple cinnamon, peaches & cream corn, and buttery popcorn. Medium+ body with good acidity an average length.

Negatives: None

Interesting Notes: LCBO puts this wine on sale a couple times a year, which makes it worth buying.

Drink now on its own or pair it with chicken Alfredo.

Tasted: 7 July 2013

Score: 8.5/10, Value: 8.5+/10 (Sale price 9/10) Total: 17+/20

Out of 5 stars, I rated this wine: 3.5

Buttered popcorn, some tropical notes, then the standard oaky overlay. Kind of 'old style' but served as a 'typical' for our tasting group class.

I wouldn't buy this....I don't enjoy the style anymore.
