Reviews and Ratings

Jane Staples - Certified Sommelier rated this wine as 91/100 with the following review:

A full-bodied, rich Chardonnay from Niagara-On-The-Lake, Ontario, with tropical guava, passionfruit, buttered toast on nose. Ripe palate gives guava, mango, coconut and buttered toast in a creamy, buttery mouthfeel. Excellent value.

Monique Sosa - Accredited Sommelier rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

Delightful, aromatic and delicious showcasing prominent notes of juicy honeycrisp apple, citrus blossom and a moderate warm buttered baguette note. A well-balanced, well-integrated, dry, medium bodied Niagara-on-the-Lake chardonnay. Pair with seafood chowder. Tasted Nov 2017 by @sommsosa | bespoketastings.ca
Andrea Shapiro rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

A delicate yet pronounced bouquet of ripe pear, delicious red apple, honeydew, dry roasted cashews and hints of dried apricot. On the palate these aromas evolve into rich flavours of apricot, honeysuckle, honeyed grapefruit, vanilla cream and a touch of toast with a smidge of white pepper soft spices at the end. Medium plus acidity, body and finish. Very well-balanced with just the perfect amount of oak. This one is also an excellent value! Try this instead of reaching for a traditional Cali Chard. Pair with buttery shrimp, soft creamy cheeses and chicken supreme.
90 points. November 19, 2017
Rachelle O'Connor rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

Great flavors of pear, apple, tropical fruit, coconut and a hint of smokiness on the palate of this full bodied Niagara-On-The-Lake Chardonnay.
From Niagara Stone Road on Niagara-on-the-Lake, Ontario, Marquis, The Silver Line (2015) Chardonnay is a single vineyard Chardonnay. The wine is full-bodied with pear and ripe apple flavours toasty oak and flinty smoke from oak treatment. Great value here, enjoy with smoked, sautéed sea scallops. - Community Wine Reviews
