Reviews and Ratings
|Gwen Barton rated this wine as 91/100 with the following review:|
Vibrant Chardonnay with generous aromas and flavours of melon, lemon, and pear with a gentle overall smokiness. Oak notes are well balanced and integrated with the fruit. Overall, a smooth pleasant wine. Pair with smoked salmon and capers.
|Dianne Sheridan - Sommelier rated this wine as 91/100 with the following review:|
The grapes are hand selected from older vines within the Short Hills Bench Appellation, the warmest area the in the region. The clay and limestone terroir contribute to the aromas of minerality-- chalk and wet stone. It has good body with flavours of lemon, citrus and vanilla. It finishes with a nice, long citrus finish. Serve with lobster and garlic butter.
|Jane Staples - Certified Sommelier rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:|
Made from grapes harvested from older vines in the Short Hills Bench Appellation, amongst the warmest in this region. Barrel fermented in 90% French oak.
Shows full, rich concentrated aromas and flavours of vanilla, ripe pineapple, a line of smoke underscoring the fruit, with coconut and slight minerality on palate. Lingering rich tropical fruit finish. Enjoy this with your next steamed lobster dinner.

|Jennifer Havers - WSET Level 3 rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:|
Lovely aromas of lemon, apple, and pear, but with a hint of stony minerality as well as a slightly spicy note - maybe nutmeg? Bright on the palate, nice acidity, and fruit and mineral notes are balanced, spice is more subtle. Very enjoyable, try this with any fish or seafood dishes. (January 2017)
|Pamela Chiles rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:|
A few swirls and this chardonnay opens up nicely with soft ripe fruit, peach, apple, and butter notes; crisp green apple and lemon on the palate. Try with grilled haloumi and peppers drizzled with pesto.
|Sylvain Segard rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:|
Nice light golden straw colour, with lovely flowery, light peach, and feint citrus aromas. Given this subtle entry, this wine surprises you with a voluptuous mouthfeel revealing a stronger taste of peach, some smokiness, light brioche, and a medium-long Meyer lemon finish.
This is a lovely sipping Chardonnay, as it shows only a hint of oak. It will pair with roasted chicken, turkey breasts, and pork chops. Drink lightly chilled in order to let the wine express its full aroma.
|Jon Steeves - Sommelier rated this wine as 87/100 with the following review:|
A clean crisp Chardonnay which offers a taste of Niagara's 2015 vintage typicity. Great with food or on its own. Enjoy. Rated 87/100 -tasted Oct 2016
