A medium-bodied Burgundian-style and barrel-fermented Chardonnay from the Vinemount Ridge, Niagara Peninsula wine region. Well-crafted and delicious with ripe red apple, buttered toast, cinnamon, nutmeg, zesty citrus flavours on the palate with a lingering clean mineral finish. So enjoyable now.

Chardonnay food pairings: Asian dishes with black bean, steamed mahi Mahi, pasta with tomato sauce, pork tenderloin.

Reviews and Ratings

Jenny Ratcliffe-Wright CWM rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

I'm always a big supporter of Ontario Chard especially from the bench. This full bodied wine was barrel fermented and aged in French oak for 11 months. It leans towards the old school in it's oaking but balances the oak well with zesty appley tones, with a lovely minerality so often seen in wines from this area. Try it with a white fish gratin with a béarnaise sauce topping @wrightwineblog
Westcott Estate 2017 Chardonnay is aged in French oak barrels for 11 months, of which one-third was new. Pair with roasted chicken. Look for spiced apple dumpling, butternut, citrus zest, mineral and baking spice flavours on this dry, medium-bodied Chard and so easy to love. - Community Wine Reviews
