Reviews and Ratings

Jennifer Havers - WSET Level 3 rated this wine as 91/100 with the following review:

Beautiful low-intervention Chardonnay sourced from the Twenty Mile Bench of Niagara, and made in Prince Edward County. Aromas of of hazelnut, golden apple, cinnamon and honey on toasty bread. Medium bodied, creamy and smooth with lovely moderate acidity, and a wonderful balance of ripe and tart apples, honey and warm spicy hints. Enjoy with any buttery or rich seafood or shellfish dishes.
Craig Haynes - WSET3 FWS SWS IWS rated this wine as 91/100 with the following review:

This cool climate chard is delicious. It generously shares beautiful notes like ripe apple, ready to eat banana, beeswax and nuttiness. Oak has touched this chardonnay, but no oak explosions here. Phew.

Classified as a VQA Twenty Mile Bench and made in Prince Edward County, it feels luscious, dry, medium bodied with amped up acidity and a lingering tasty finish.

I’ll serve this with grilled poultry.
