Description

Winemaking Notes: Tawse is proud to partner with Canadian music icon and Order of Canada recipient Jim Cuddy to introduce “Cuddy by Tawse” Chardonnay. Jim collaborated with winemakers Paul Pender and Rene Van Ede to create this premium barrel-fermented blend. Aged 12 months in French oak, this wine displays aromas of Bosc pear, baking spice, white flower and hints of wet stone minerality. Crips notes of grapefruit are accompanied by apple and pear and a touch of shy oak, resulting in a beautiful mouth feel on the palate.

Growing Conditions: Sourced from select Niagara Peninsula vineyards. Viticultural practices included vertical shoot positioning, shoot thinning, cluster thinning, hand leaf removal and hand harvest.

Food Pairing: The minerality and fruitiness of this wine makes it a pleasure to food pair with dishes such as sole meuniere, scallop ravioli or breaded chicken with lemon beurre blanc. Also the perfect pairing for a classic potato salad.

Drinking Window: 2016-2022

A rich, full-bodied Niagara Chardonnay with aromas of toasted almond, golden apple and peach. A layered mid-palate with terrific replays of orchard fruit flavours. Finishes long and smooth. This wine was aged for 12 months in French oak barrels. The 2013 vintage is the inaugural release of this wine. Jim Cuddy, lead singer and guitarist of the Canadian band Blue Rodeo, has partnered with Niagara’s Tawse Winery to create a new wine bran d, Cuddy by Tawse. Cuddy is one of the country’s most iconic musicians: over the past thirty years Blue Rodeo has sold more than four million records, released 14 albums and won eleven JUNO awards. Pair with grilled chicken while enjoying an outdoor concert.
