Christian scored this wine: 89/100
Pondview Estate Winery, located in Niagara on the Lake, crafts many amazing wines, with passion and dedication, since the late 60’s. The 2016 Chardonnay Barrel Fermented is one them. Barrel fermented for 22 months, this Chardonnay reveals aromas of pear, yellow apple, lemon peel, crème fraiche, vanilla, marshmallow and oak. Creamy, with just enough acidity to clean the palate, this medium-bodied wine has a long tree fruit finish that perfects this well made Chardonnay. From the first sip, peach, apricot, lemon, honey, saline, butter, pie crust and oak. Pair with creamy cheese or pasta dish. Enjoy!
