2017 Chardonnay

Sand & Gravel

The 2017 growing season started out very wet. We had quite a bit of rain during the months of April and May. Luckily for us as summer progressed in got warmer and warmer, culminating in 25 straight days of sunshine in September. This made for a classic Niagara expression of Chardonnay that we think you’ll enjoy.

Food Pairing: The 2017 S&G Chardonnay would pair wonderfully with lemon and garlic sautéed shrimp served over wild rice.
