2020 Niagara Peninsula 750 mL, 12.5% ALC/VOL
$24.95
Chardonnay

Crisp fragrances of apple slices with cream and a delicate citrusy inference. A mouthful is bright and playfully textured, with flavours reminding of green apple, honey and toasted almond.

Grapes were hand-picked from our original Moira site at average 21.6° brix.

After whole-cluster pressing, the juice finished primary fermentation in stainless steel. The majority of the wine settled and aged on the lees in a horizontal steel tank, while a small remainder was directed to steel barrels. Nine months later, 389 cases were bottled in July 2020.

At the time of bottling, alcohol measured 12.5%, residual sugar 2.5 grams per litre, titratable acidity 6.7 grams per litre and pH 3.29.

This vintage will drink well through 2024.

Vegan friendly.

Food Companions: Try with roasted chicken, turkey or pork or baked fish. Serve near 10° C
