The 2014 Greer Road Chardonnay was made from fruit grown in our Greer Road vineyard in Prince Edward County. This block was harvested by hand, processed and aged in a single cask. After a gentle pressing, the wine flowed by gravity to a single French oak barrique for fermentation. The wine remained in oak for ten months. Following settling and coarse filtration, the wine was bottled in December of 2015. Flavours of lemon peel, wet stones and flint with subtle hints of spice and caramel. Followed by minerality and fresh acidity.
Awards & Ratings
The premium player in Keint-He’s chardonnay stable comes off of the estate vineyard on the Greer Road, a prized and sought after strip of County defining fruit. The vintage 2014 represents the pinnacle of its growth, gifting the ferment with what can only be assessed as near-perfect fruit, phenols in line with extract, balance acquiesed from the start and through the time travels of pitchy acidity and endless length. The orchard is well represented, crisp and then the spicy accents provided by barrel take this to an honoured space. A revelation for the County is spoken through one of its great chardonnay speeches. What a difference 12 months can make. Last tasted April 2017. The specificity of the label conjures up territorial Hillier thoughts for Chardonnay made by Norm Hardie, Dan Sullivan and Paul Battilana. While the Greer thread runs through and keeps it in the family this is all in Keint-He issue. Possessive of a richness shown by few other PEC Chardonnay, there counteracts and stabilizes a cool climate snap, crackle and green apple pop. Tang folds into lovely tart, citrus bitter curd with a wisely executed tumult. And there is no relent. A Chardonnay ripper. Beware the power. Drink 2016-2020. Tasted April 2016.
