Natalie's Score: 90/100

Great complexity in this full-bodied chardonnay. The grapes come from older vineyards. More earthy than fruity. This wine spent 20 months in new oak.

Chardonnay food pairings: roast chicken, stronger sheep’s or goat’s cheese.

Heather Wall CS; WSET Certified rated this wine as 91/100 with the following review:

Loved this wine! Full-bodied and toasty. Currently basking in the golden glow of a GOLD medal from the Decanter Magazine Wine Awards. Lots of lucious Niagara tree fruit, honey, toast, earthy notes. Nothing ABC about this chardonnay.
Long length on the creamy fruit driven finish.
Paired well with smoked oysters and smoked octopus.
Drinking nicely now but definitely has some ageing potential.
