A lovely, floral Niagara Chardonnay with balanced and racy acidity for seafood. Medium-bodied with some toasted almond and golden apple aromas. Lovely.
Chardonnay Musqué food pairings: pan-fried tempura shellfish, crab cakes, pan-fried cod.

|Elizabeth Vickers rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:|
Served with pan fried cod fillets, fries, and cole slaw on my (67th) birthday! As ET said, a bit sweet but complimented nicely the fish dinner. One bottle between the two of us went down very easily...definitely a good choice.
|Daniel O'Keefe rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:|
Beautiful and broad nose featuring plenty of peach, honeydew melon, tropical fruits, floral notes, and butter. Extra dry, good acidity, and pleasant minerality. Oak and spice are subtle on the palate, more prominent in the finish. Huge tropical and stone fruit before minerality reappears and shares the stage with oak as the fruit notes fade. All in all, excellent fruit-oak balance, something lacking in many oaked Chardonnays. Enjoy with seafood or roast chicken or turkey.
|Jennifer Havers - WSET Level 3 rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:|
Chardonnay with a floral note. You also get some of that pear and golden apple on the palate. This was vilified in stainless steel but still has a softness on the finish. Nicely balanced overall. Enjoy with scallops or other rich seafood dishes.
|Cave Spring 2016 is an estate-bottled Chardonnay Musqué from the Niagara Escarpment's Beamsville Bench in Ontario. The wine grapes are sourced from a single block in Cave Spring Vineyard. The 2016 vintage was a warm one and this flavoursome white is round and supple, weighty and rich on the palate with flavours of ripe golden apples and lemon pudding flavours. Pair with roast chicken. - Community Wine Reviews|
