Natalie's Score: 88/100
From Niagara Stone Road on Niagara-on-the-Lake, Ontario, the 2016 vintage of the Marquis, The Silver Line Chardonnay is a single vineyard Chardonnay. A full-bodied Niagara white wine made from Chardonnay grapes. Asian pear notes wrapped in lots of toasty oak and campfire smoke from oak aging. Pair with grilled tuna and baked quail.
Chardonnay food pairings: grilled lobster tail, roasted whole chicken, roasted quail stuffed with wild mushrooms.
Sensational Shellfish Wine

|Rachelle O'Connor rated this wine as 91/100 with the following review:|
Full bodied, lots of flavor - an impressively smooth Chardonnay - quite a vintage. An award winning wine with a beautiful bouquet and palate of freshly harvested pear, orchard apple and ripe melon. Divine with pan seared scallops.....yum!
|Lynn van der Linde - Certified Sommelier rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:|
A quintessential expression of Niagara Chardonnay - and Ontario does it best.
Heady aromas of stone fruit, red apples and white flowers transform to a zippy lime finish. A perfect balance of toasted oak and zesty fruit.
Wonderful with poached salmon and dill sauce.
Tasted April 2018.
|Pam Hatton rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:|
Light golden yellow with upfront apple notes on the nose. A quick swirl in the glass reveals subdued oak vanilla and caramel. A medium to full bodied wine with a viscous feel in the mouth has balanced acidity and a smooth finish. On the palate, notes of apple, pear and a hint of floral evolve into a bitter almond finish. The oak is balanced and will show more tertiary flavors with a bit of age. Lovely Canadian wine at a great price.
|From the Niagara Stone Road Vineyard, Niagara-on-the-Lake wine region, G. Marquis, The Silver Line Chardonnay is a single vineyard, full-bodied Chardonnay. Fermentation is in temperature-controlled stainless steel tank for three weeks. The wine underwent malolactic fermentation and was aged six months in French and American oak with subsequent aging over a period of 16 months in stainless steel. On the palate, there are notes of ripe pear, yellow apples, light herbs, with a butter oak spice finish. There is also great acidity for food on this well-rounded and balanced Chardonnay from grilled calamari to pasta Primavera. - Community Wine Reviews|
