Reviews and Ratings

Jane Staples - Certified Sommelier rated this wine as 92/100 with the following review:

Rich butterscotch aromas and light tropical notes extend into the luscious palate that bursts out with butterscotch, sweet spice and toast. Satiny texture and rich lingering finish. Enjoy with Chicken Alfredo.
Tasted Feb. 2017
Carolyn Hetke rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

The slightly woody, toasty nose on this literally made me sigh! This is a beautifully balanced wine. Light oak, light spice. Clean on the palate. No overpowering elements detract from the overall experience. Beautiful nose, beautiful palate. Worth every penny!
Tasted March 2017
Heather Wall - CS; WSET Advanced rated this wine as 87/100 with the following review:

Medium-bodied with lemon and butter notes off the top! Toast, honey, nuttiness and some oak kept in check by zippy acidity. A little bitterness on the finish.
Tasted: February 2017
Stephen Andrews reviewed this wine as follows:

Tasted April 24th 2017. Colour clear on the rim and a brilliant golden straw colour to the core. Very elegant colour would match well with gold plated silverware. Aroma of tropical fruits, perfume and notes of candy. Just lovely on the nose. On the palate grapefruit, candy and mineral notes all nicely balanced with soft silk mouth feel. Nice medium long finish, mouthwatering and flavourful. This is a lovely drinking wine that would pair with shellfish and chicken dishes. Super value from Niagara Ontario. Thank you Kevin Panagapka winemaker and the great Wismer vineyard - Fox Croft Block.
Wismer Vineyard, Fox Croft Block (2014) Chardonnay is made ripe red apple, pear, sweet spice and smoky from light oak ageing. A very elegant and racy Chardonnay sipper from the Twenty Mile Bench on the Niagara Escarpment. - Community Wine Reviews
