2013 Reserve Chardonnay
2013 was a great season for growing Chardonnay. The cool nights in September maintained acidity and kept the grape maturation at a slow, predictable rate. The fruit comes from our very own organic family farm on the St. Davids Bench. Enjoy now through 2020. Our 2013 Reserve Chardonnay is a bright golden colour. It has aromas of toasted hazelnuts, minerals and lemon custard. On the palate, this Chardonnay is full and rich with a classic Ontario freshness and an intensity of flavour that truly earns it the title of Reserve. A long, luxurious finish is the perfect end to this wine’s structure and finesse.
