Silver Medal National Wine Awards of Canada

Silver Medal Chardonnay Du Monde

Silver Medal Lieutenant Governor’s Awards for Excellence

A beautifully crafted wine with the vast majority kept in stainless steel to maintain the bright, fresh, vivid fruit notes. A small percentage was kept in older oak to add texture, mouthfeel and subtle oak influences.

Tasting & Pairing

Pale lemon in the glass, expect aromas of ripe orchard fruit, briochie and a hint of minerality. The palate is bursting with bright stone fruit flavours along with a hint of butterscotch and citrus. This wine has very good intensity, a nice texture and beautiful mouthwatering acidity. This is a wonderfully versatile food wine. Try pairing with lemon roasted chicken, seafood risotto, or creamy butternut squash soup.

Winemaking

Our Chardonnay is a blend of reputable French clones including clones 95, 96, 277 and 809 grown on differing terroir on our estate. We make this wine using a combination of stainless steel tanks and neutral oak barrels to add body and complexity to the finished wine. Enjoy now until 2023.
