A pleasant, easy-drinking white wine made from the Chardonnay grape by Stoney Ridge Winery in Niagara (Vineland). This wine honours The Tragically Hip's album Ahead by a Century. Aromas of melon and apple with some butterscotch from oak aging.

Reviews and Ratings

This wine was introduced in 2016 to celebrate the 20th anniversary of the Hip's classic album Trouble at the Henhouse. The Tragically Hip Ahead by a Century (2016) Chardonnay is great value under $20. Creamy on the palate, look for crunch green apple, citrus zest and toasty flavours. Service chilled with a roast chicken and raise a glass to the Gord Downie. - Community Wine Reviews
