This is a slender, taut, quite mineral chardonnay with generous if subtle aromas of peat smoke, apple-pineapple,...

An elegant cool climate Chard that should please those that don’t like woody Chards

Description: Bright light gold in colour with a medium to medium+ intense nose. This wine features medium light oak, lemon, pink grapefruit, nutmeg, Fuji apple, nectarine, oak spice and wet stone. Medium body with good acidity and a long length.

Negatives: None

Interesting Note: I found the 2013 vintage nicer than the previous vintage, reviewed here April 2014. The winery sells the wine for $28 US, so good buy, especially at the sale price for LCBO

Drink now or in the next 5 years on its own or pair it with pan-roasted stilton chicken with apple ginger sauce.

Tasted: 27 Dec 2014

Best Buy at sale price

Score: 9/10, Value: 9/10 Total: 18/20

Out of 5 stars, I rated this wine: 4
