The Rusty Shed Chardonnay, 2021

Shipped and sold by Flat Rock Cellars

2021 Niagara Peninsula 750 mL, 13.5% ALC/VOL
Critic's Rating 91 pts

The Rusty Shed represents a barrel selection of estate Chardonnays chosen for their full flavoured richness on the palate, textured with the subtleties of oak. When blending this wine we are looking for something with aging potential that is not only going to be fresh and vibrant today, but also enjoyed for years to come.

Critic's Rating

High level of toasty, exotic oak on the nose framed by plenty of honeyed notes, lemon and peach skin. Nice texture.
