Reviews and Ratings

Jane Staples - Certified Sommelier rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

Made from hand-harvested grapes, showing apple, citrus and vanilla in a fruit-forward style. Pair with your next roast chicken, or grilled garlic shrimp.
Tasted Feb. 2019
Jon Steeves - Sommelier rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

Great value in this refreshing, lightly oaked Niagara Chardonnay. Balanced, wet stone minerality, medium plus acidity, medium body. Blood orange zest, green apple and a hint of vanilla bean. Paired well with a grilled chicken spinach salad with sliced almonds and quinoa sprinkles. Tasted 2016 vintage in March 2019. 89 points. Great option to buy by the case at an accessible price point.
From the Niagara Peninsula, Ontario wine region, Redstone Chardonnay 2016 is a creamy Chardonnay with ripe pear, apple, orange blossom, vanilla and citrus flavours on the palate with a lingering butter toffee finish. The wine was fermented with natural yeast and matured in French oak barrel for one year. Pair with grilled pork chops. - Community Wine Reviews
