Reviews and Ratings

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

An extra-dry, light-bodied chardonnay showing white tree fruit, citrus and slight mineral aromas and flavours. Cool fermentation in stainless steel results in clear fruit flavours right through to the finish.
Great value for those who preferred their chard unoaked.
Tasted July 2016
Jon Steeves - Sommelier rated this wine as 88/100 with the following review:

Brilliant pale straw, crisp and well balanced Canadian Chardonnay from Niagara. This wine is well executed and value priced. Sustainably produced by a biodynamic winery. Pairs well with roasted chicken or drinks easily on its own. Great value. A sure crowd pleaser. @jonsteeves rated 88/100 - tasted Oct 2016 - bespoketastings.ca
Andrew Bernardo rated this wine as 88/100 with the following review:

Definitely a case-worthy wine from Southbrook. Very easy drinking. This wine features crushed flowers, golden delicious apple, white peach, citrus skin, and crushed rock. At $16 how can you go wrong. 88 Points (www.ottawawinejournal.com)
Pamela Chiles rated this wine as 88/100 with the following review:

Fresh and crisp, unoaked chardonnay to try on on your ABC friends. Melon, yellow apple, hints of tropical fruit emerge on the nose; crisp and dry and citrus-y on the palate. Nice at this price. Keep a few chilled and ready go.
Monique Sosa - Accredited Sommelier rated this wine as 88/100 with the following review:

Clean pronounced fresh apple, peach, honey and citrus aromas smack you right off the bat, while the palate shows concentrated tart lemon and mineral notes. This wine is light bodied with high moutherwatering acidity and a crisp finish. Living up to its name, this wine should cool off a hot patio quite well. Pair leafy summer salads topped mild citrus vinegrettes.
Nick Onischuk - Accredited Sommelier rated this wine as 88/100 with the following review:
