This full-bodied, rich and layered Niagara white wine made from the classic Chardonnay grapes, offers smoky campfire aromas on the nose that open into ripe peach and pear and golden apple on the palate. Pair with roast chicken and a warm, cuddly sweater.
Chardonnay food pairings: crab legs, corn dishes, stuffed chicken breast.

|Jon Steeves - Sommelier rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:|
Beautiful, full bodied. Great balance. Medium oak, yielding soft and creamy mouthfeel. Mouthwatering medium plus acidity. Tangy blood orange, vanilla bean, savoury and a hint of lime zest. Pairs well with Chinese take out egg rolls, lemon chicken, traditional roast chicken dinner, fried noodles. Also drinking well on its own. Tasted 2016 vintage in Nov 2017. 90 points. BespokeTastings
|Andrea Shapiro rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:|
Pale lemon colour with aromas of banana, apricot, smoke, super ripe peaches, golden delicious apple with a touch of light soft caramel. Flavours are full and prominently feature pear, stone fruit, creme brulee and toasted cashews. Also a very faint but featured bit of brioche. A nice creamy texture with medium plus acidity, medium body and finish. Pair with creamy shrimp risotto or saucy chicken supreme. 90 points - tasted November 19, 2017
|Lynn Van Der Linde - Certified Sommelier rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:|
Beautiful wine to pair with fish.
A very balanced, not overly oaky Chardonnay.
Pineapple and candied banana aromas with hints of toasted almonds carry through on the palate with luxurious mouth and a zesty lime finish.
Perfect with salmon or tuna steaks.
Tasted February 2018.
|Melanie Lloyd - Certified Sommelier rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:|
Poached apple aromas, loads of minerality, and hints of wood, vanilla, and almond. Round and creamy on the palate with apple flavours and a bitter nutty finish. Pair with smoky cheese.
Tasted July 2018

A yummy value-priced toasty, buttery and fruity Chardonnay. Top flavours include vanilla bean, apple, citrus, and melon. The palate showcases a juicy mouthfeel with a crisp finish. Enjoy with roasted chicken and harvest root veggies. Tasted Nov 2017 by @sommsosa | bespoketastings.ca
|Nicole Lewis rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:|
An intense straw yellow Ontario Chardonnay, from the respected Speck family offers aromas of pineapple, white peach and toasted marshmellow. The mouth is greeted with a smooth feel and medium to full bodied wine sporting moderate acidity. This chard exhibits flavours of pineapple, white peach and vanilla. Nice price point for the quality.

Medium weight for Canadian Chardonnay. More fruit than oak on the palate. Perfectly crafted, perfect price.
|Sharon Aubie rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:|
Lots of honey with tropical fruit and buttery. Medium-bodied feel on the mouth. Moderate oak and a long finish. Would pair well with cornish hen, oven-based chicken breasts or bring at your next Turkey-based holiday gathering.

Tropical fruit and buttered apples aromas with creamy apple, citrus and pineapple on the palate. Medium bodied and acidity. Pair with roast chicken. Tasted July 2018.
|From Short Hills Bench in the Niagara Escarpment wine region, Henry Of Pelham Estate (2016) is full-bodied with ripe stonefruit, pear and golden apple flavours on the palate. The grapes are hand -selected from older vines within the Short Hills Bench Appellation, the warmest area the in the region. Killer price for this well-balanced and vibrant Chardonnay. Pair with grilled pork chops. - Community Wine Reviews|
