Bella Terra Chardonnay Sur Lie, 2021

Shipped and sold by PondView at Bella Terra Vineyards

2021 Niagara Peninsula 750 mL, 12.5% ALC/VOL
Critic's Rating 89 pts

Our 2021 Bella Terra Chardonnay Sur Lie starts off with aromas of tropical fruit like bananas, yellow apple, and pears. To taste, this dry wine has a balanced acidity, layered with flavours of fresh yellow apple, cantaloupe, and a creamy finish.

We recommend pairing this wine with fettuccine with white truffle butter, or some scrumptious escargot!

Residual sugar: 7.3 g/L

Critic's Rating

Some lees stirring is employed in the making of this unoaked style of Chardonnay. The nose shows creamy pear, yellow apple, and lemon tart amid a seam of freshness. It has a creamy texture, ripe orchard fruits, zesty citrus, and mouth-watering acidity on the finish. If you prefer your Chardonnay unoaked, but love texture, take this out for a spin.
