Bella Terra Chardonnay, 2018

Shipped and sold by PondView at Bella Terra Vineyards

2018 Niagara Peninsula 750 mL, 13.5% ALC/VOL
Critic's Rating 90 pts

Our 2018 Chardonnay has an initial buttery aroma that is followed by layers of tropical fruit notes, such as banana, baked bread and vanilla. This full bodied wine has a balanced acidity, with notes of caramel candy apple and butter on the palate, ending off with a dry finish.

Food Pairing: This wine pairs perfectly with Carbonara spaghetti or Portuguese custard tart.
