The Tragically Hip Ahead By A Century 2020 Chardonnay is produced from grapes sourced from several vineyards in Niagara wine region. The wine was aged in French oak (90% new) and American oak (10%) barrels. Lush on the palate with buttered toast, ripe apple, lemon curd, vanilla cream finishing long on the palate. Pour with a traditional roast chicken dinner. - Community Wine Reviews
