Natalie's Score: 89/100
Very pretty and mouth-watering Niagara Chardonnay Musqué, which is a clone of Chardonnay that is not exactly the same as many Chardonnay clones in that it offers more floral and apricot notes. Perfect for Asian dishes.
Chardonnay Musqué food pairings: Asian dishes, shellfish.
Sensational Shellfish Wine

|Jane Staples - Certified Sommelier rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:|
Vinified in stainless steel to optimize fruit flavours. Fragrant tropical fruit and orange rind on nose, with a palate that gives delightful guava, apple and citrus rind. Crisp, dry mouthfeel with lingering citrus finish.
Tasted August 2016
|Heather Wall - CS; WSET Advanced rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:|
Perfect aperitif wine with a little cleansing spritz! Enjoy this off-dry white wine well chilled. This pretty white blend is a touch floral with lingering off-dry sweetness and stone fruit. An easy crowd pleaser and always consistent. Pair it with spicy Thai or curry dishes.
Tasted: January 2017
|Andrea Shapiro rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:|
Pale straw in colour with green hue. Clear density. A vibrant, fruity and floral bouquet. Lemon, green apple, tart pear, slight tropical notes, tart pineapple, beeswax, loads of floral aromas - honeysuckle and sweet pea. On the palate lemon, green apple, clay and light oak come to life. Medium body, acidity and finish. Crisp, dry and oily. 3g/L 13.5%. Gorgeous Chardonnay Musqué. Pair with linguine Alfredo and garlic buttered shrimp. 89 points.
|The Chardonnay grapes for this musqué style wine are grown in the winery's Cave Spring Vineyard and offer Muscat-like aromas. This estate bottled Niagara Chardonnay was fermented in stainless steel and not oaked to preserve the freshness of the fruit. Perfect as an aperitif. This wine originates from the winery's estate Cave Spring Vineyard located on the hillside of the Niagara Escarpment overlooking Lake Ontario known as the Beamsville Bench. The wine was vinified in stainless steel to preserve fruit freshness and offers Muscat-like aromas that are characteristic of the chardonnay musqué clone. - Community Wine Reviews|
