Southbrook Poetica Chardonnay VQA 2006

Southbrook Poetica Chardonnay VQA 2006
Niagara-on-the-Lake, Canada

 
Drink: Now

Sue Kupka reviewed this wine as follows:

92 points — "Clean, very fresh, low oak influence seems to be nicely integrated, some mineral notes, green apple, cream. Dry, clean, fresh, highly flavoured — this is a step up from the 2006 Triomphe, at least stylistically different. Lovely hazelnut flavours linger on and on, and acidity is rivetingly fresh. Drink late 2009 on."
–John Szabo, First in Line

Pineapple, spice, butter, hints of toast on the nose with apple, lemon citrus and vanilla on the palate and a wonderful long mouth feel. A baby, this is showing well now but will continue to develop complexity for years.
