What could be better than a wine that pays it forward? A wine with purpose tastes good!
Daniel Lenko's Chardonngay Unoaked Chardonnay was pleasant surprise at a blind tasting today.
Creamy and elegant texture. Apple, pear,honey, sweet spice, yogurt, butter, chamomile.
Medium bodied with medium acidity. Simply a lovely sipper or pair with favorite seafood, chicken, cheeses. Food friendly.
$1 of every purchase goes to AIDS research in Canada.

August 17, 2014: Pale gold, melon, apple, honeyed nose. Medium light body, apple, citrus, white peach on the palate with a medium finish. Nice acidity showing from a hotter Ontario vintage, this is nice on its own or with roast chicken or shellfish.

Pale lemon yellow with notes of citrus, apple, pear and a hint of honey. On the palate has a soft, luscious feel – citrus and apple come through as well as the honey. Medium bodied with a long finish. Quite refreshing.
Philippe Perreault, Sommelier rated this wine as 86/100 with the following review:

Clear yellow/green color with aromas of black olive, green apple and herb.

The palate is crisp, creamy and the finish is long.

Pair it with Fettucinis Alfredo.

Serve it at 10-12 degrees.

Can be aged 3-5 years.
Tom Vigeant reviewed this wine as follows:

Chardonngay, with its pride flag label, displays an enticing tropical and ripe orchard fruit nose with a hint of honey. Well balanced acidity on the palate, medium body, dry. Medium to long finish. A very pleasant unoaked chard.
