$22.95 in Sask with the ever-so courteous 30% mark up the SLGA loves to impose. I would've given extra mark for value if was in the under $20 category where unoaked Chards should be. Very ripe and fruity on the nose; melon, pear, peach and white flowers. The palate is solid with juicy, crisp, citrusy acid balanced with rich fruit on a medium finish. Overall a medium-plus body, easy drinking, refreshing yet stands up to steelhead trout. Great Chard to bring back the ABC crowd. Drink over next couple years. Tasted Xmas '13.
