This afternoon I have opened the 2017 Hidden Bench VQA Beamsville Bench Estate Chardonnay. A 100% Organic Chardonnay from Beamsville, Ontario.
On the nose the is pineapple, apricot, lemon curd, creme brulee, honeysuckle, praline and almond.
On the palate there is lemon, pear, pineapple, green apple, marzipan, wet flint rock and minerality.
This wine is medium bodied with medium + acidity that leads into a long fresh clean citrus finish. I hope everyone's weekend has been a good one and that the week ahead is safe. Nostrovia! 🥂🥂🥂🥂 — 5 days ago

Distinctive nose of petrol green apple and melon with a tang on the taste buds￼ — 2 months ago
attractive, unusual gold color, supposed to be bone-dry, and it is , without sourness. a tiny bit of mineral, like a grigio, but smoother. I liked it very much — 3 months ago
One of nicest wines, full of dark fruit and flavour that is complex and long lasting on the tongue. Soft on tannins and so enjoyable. — 5 months ago
