Natalie's Score: 90/100

Wow, packs a sensory punch with gorgeous aromas of green apple, smoke, butterscotch and toasted almond. One of Canada’s best wine producers across the board. Let’s stop analyzing it: just try it.

Sixty-five percent was barrel-fermented (only 20% of the barrels were new) and the remainder was fermented in stainless steel. This gave winemaker Grant Stanley the opportunity to blend a fruit-forward wine with only subtle oak, in a style deliberately different from the winery’s reserve Chardonnay. There are notes of citrus on the nose and the palate. The hint of oak and of the lees fleshes out the wine which, nevertheless, finishes with a clean, focused and refreshing crispness.
