Reviews and Ratings

Jennifer Havers - WSET Level 3 rated this wine as 88/100 with the following review:

A great value priced Chardonnay. Partially aged in American oak, the result is subtle and balanced. Green apple and light citrus round out the nose, and the flavours are bright on the palate, with only a hint of caramel from the oak effect. Very versatile for food, try with chicken, pasta with creamy or rich sauces, or lighter fish dishes.
Pamela Chiles rated this wine as 87/100 with the following review:

Smooth, round mouthfeel; apple, hint of caramel, oak spice (a small percentage gets oak treatment), light-bodied and fairly simple. Try with seared scallops or steamed mussels in creamy garlic broth.
Dianne Sheridan - Sommelier rated this wine as 87/100 with the following review:

This Chardonnay is crisp and aromatic with a touch of oak. A lot of citrus flavours, esp. grapefruit and some hints of lemon on the finish. Not a complex Chardonnay but a nice wine for the price that can be enjoyed with cream based dishes, white fish or chicken.
Jane Staples - Certified Sommelier rated this wine as 87/100 with the following review:

A budget-friendly light, fresh Chardonnay reflecting the cool climate style from Niagara Peninsula. Light tropical fruit aromas and flavours, with a touch of caramel and some oak. A bit watery on the palate.
