Natalie's Score: 90/100
This fresh white wine was vinified in stainless steel tanks with the unique Musqué clone of Chardonnay. Lovely and refreshing with lime lift acidity for shellfish. Green apple and grapefruit notes. Spicy finish. Perfect for medium curries and spices.
Chardonnay Musqué food pairings: pan-fried tempura shellfish, crab cakes, pan-fried cod.
Sensational Shellfish Wine

|Greg Hughes rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:|
Very few wineries take the time to produce a hugh quality Chard Musque. This one was done reductively; blocking malolactic or oak influence... Though there may be some fine lees contact (which adds a slightly soft mouthfeel). It is pure and fruity, though not your typical Chardonnay primary fruit. Imagine tropical, zesty, in-your-face Chardonnay.
Pale lemon colour.
Aromas of dried banana chips, anjou pear, pineapple, white grapefruit and lemon meringue.
The flavours are soft, juicy, and unique. Not sure I have had a Chard Musque I enjoyed as much as this. It is drier than they often are.
Tasty wine for a shrimp salad, or maybe for crab cakes. Drink now!
|Cave Spring Estate Bottled (2015) is a Chardonnay Musqué from the Niagara Escarpment's Beamsville Bench in Ontario. This is a very elegant, stylish wine with a lime-lemon lift. Chardonnay Musqué is an aromatic mutation of Chardonnay. It is grown principally in the vineyards of Canada's Niagara Peninsula and New York's Finger Lakes. The grape is so named because of its heady musky grapey perfume. The wine is typically off-dry with a medium body. - Community Wine Reviews|
