Renaceau Chardonnay, 2017

Shipped and sold by Rosewood Estates Winery

2017 Niagara Peninsula 750 mL, 13.6% ALC/VOL

Ripe, vibrant and textured, this is a Chardonnay you can really sink into. Sourced from our Beamsville estate (planted 2003), the 2017 summer was cool, helping us preserve natural mouthwatering acidity. Pear driven on the palate, with toasted oak, vanilla and baking spice notes.

The brass tacks:

  • Fermented using non-selected indigenous yeast.
  • 100% fermented in new French oak foudre.
  • Matured 22-months on lees in oak foudre.
  • Bottled without fining or filtration.
