VQA Lake Erie North Shore
The 2018 growing season proved to be one of finesse in Ontario and particularly in the Lake Erie North Shore DVA. The warm and sunny climatic conditions allowed for slow and even maturation of our Estate Chardonnay. Precision agriculture, teamwork and expertise ensured harvest at peak conditions. The wine was fermented and aged for 12 months in new French oak barrels.
The nose on this Estate Grown golden vintage is pure bakery over bliss, with brioche and butterscotch notes to tease.
The palate savors buttery pie crust, hazelnuts and baked pineapple. Caramel overtones finish with a soft and silky mouthfeel.
This wine pairs best with traditional turkey dinner, butter poached lobster, rich sauces with seafood or sharp cheeses. Dessert match would be crème brûlée of course!
We have made only 55 cases of this quality vintage. Drink now or cellar for up to 7 years.
