Reviews and Ratings

Jon Steeves - Sommelier rated this wine as 94/100 with the following review:

Wow! Exceptional Chardonnay! A must try. Declared 13% ABV. Low sulphites at 22ppm. Aromatics of green mango, ripe pineapple, butterscotch with same on the palate. Fantastic mouthwatering acidity, well-balanced boastful fruit, medium alcohol intensity. Tasted 2014 vintage in April 2017. Integrating well. Pairs with bacon wrapped scallops, gourmet club sandwich, gourmet chicken burger with bacon and avocado, sushi. 94 points.
Matt Steeves - Certified Sommelier rated this wine as 94/100 with the following review:

Burgundy, take note...Ontario is quickly becoming known as the cool-kid on the block! With wines such as Icellars Chardonnay, Ontario is showing the world just how great its wines can be. Icellars 2014 Chardonnay is a remarkably delicious, complex, and beautifully balanced cool-climate Chard, in fact, this is one of the finest Canadian Chards I've tasted in recent memory. The nose shows delicious apple, with fresh pineapple, spicy orchard fruit, brioche and toast. The palate is creamy with refreshing weight and texture. Beautiful structure, the crisp orchard fruit and expressive tropical fruits articulate precisely how ripe, refreshing, and complex premium cool-climate Chardonnay can be. This is a buy by the case wine that offers incredible value at $35/bottle! Enjoy now through 2022. Tasted April 2017. 94 points. Matt Steeves - www.quercusvino.ca
Colin McKone - Sommelier rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

An excellent Ontario Chardonnay, it is pale straw in colour. It's 12 months of aging in French oak really comes through with aromas of butter, biscuits and green apple. It is creamy on the palate with flavours of butter, lemon and tart green apple. This chard is medium bodied with well balanced acidity. It will pair well with roasted chicken or turkey and most cheeses. (Tasted at Taste Ontario, March 29, 2017)
