Kew Vineyards

Estate Vineyard Old Vine Chardonnay 2014

Nice minerality and just enough oak to give depth and mouth feel without being an over the top smoke bomb. Good example of Ontario cold climate Chardonnay. #kewvineyards #ontariowine #niagarawine #chardonnay — 4 years ago

Flat Rock Cellars

The Rusty Shed Twenty Mile Bench VQA Chardonnay 2006

The 2006 Rusty Shed Chardonnay is a blend of four blocks of Chardonnay on the Flat Rock Property. Grapes are hand picked and hand sorted before whole bunch pressing takes place. It was then cold settled in stainless steel, 100% barrel fermented and left on the lees for 10 months. Wild and commercial yeasts were used for primary fermentation, followed by malolactic fermentation to soften the natural acidity. The result?
Beautiful example of a mid to full bodied Chardonnay with butter, vanilla, apples and light spice on the palate. A lot of flavour and elegance at this price point. Sampled this 2006 in 2017 but this should sit well and perhaps develop more for a few more years. Best part? It's from Niagara! Loved it!

Pillitteri Estates Winery

Reserve Exclamation Cellar Series Merlot

Pillitteri Estates 2010 VQA Niagara-on-the-Lake Exclamation Series Reserve Merlot. Nose is all blood, brambleberries and spice; palate is all that plus a bit of tar and a lush, round, sexy weight on the tongue. #ontariowine #VQAwine — 5 years ago
