WINEMAKING NOTE: The Voyageur Chardonnay fruit in 2012 was grown from two premium vineyards on the Niagara Escarpment. These two portions were both hand harvested, whole bunch pressed, and then fermented individually in new and used French oak barrels. After almost twelve months undisturbed in barrel, the barrels for the blend were chosen and the wine was bottled in September of 2013.

TASTING NOTE: Green fruits and white flowers show through on the nose, with baked apple, pear and honeydew leading the way. Baking spice and meringue aromas and flavours are evidence of the wines time in oak, and time sitting on its yeast lees. The palate is the perfect balance of rich oak spice and refreshing citrus-like acidity.

Unquenchable by Natalie MacLean

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a fiesty North American answer to Hugh Johnson and Jancis Robinson. She can write beautifully about wine.

The Financial Times of London

There are very few people in the wine world who "get it" and Natalie is one of those who brings more fun to a buttoned-up and stodgy game.
