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.

|James Pybus rated this wine as 95/100 with the following review:|
Lovely floral notes, subtle and soothing. We enjoyed it with baked salmon.
|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.

If Chardonnay and Gewürztraminer had a baby -this would be it! It has a Chardonnay body but add in pronounced aromatics of white flowers and lychee. Off-dry, slightly floral and medium-bodied, this would pair with Asian food or cream cheese appetizers. Tasted February 2020. www.thewineloverskitchen.com

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 for the fragrant and flavoursome white, round and supple, weighty and rich on the palate with ripe golden apples, peach and lemon pudding flavours. Fermented in stainless steel and unoaked to capture and enhance the aromatics and flavours of the Chardonnay Musqué grape. - Community Wine Reviews|
