This wine, with its lush berry aromas and a hint of oak, is a favourite among both novices and connoisseurs. As LCBO Vintage product specialist Shelley Hedden says, "A very soft and velvety full bodied mouthfeel … dark plum and dark cherry vanilla with a mild clove on the finish; also light dusty tannin on the finish (which I love)!! I loved it!”. (92)   A wine that complements both casual and sophisticated dining."

2020 Estate Chardonnay:

The 2020 Estate Chardonnay continues our tradition of crafting wines that delight the senses. Its blend of fruitiness and complexity makes it both versatile and memorable. Wine critic Rick Van Sickle remarks, "Sourced from the estate’s older Chardonnay vines (25 years old) … There is (remarkably, due to the vintage) a racy vein of salinity on the palate with a complex array of ripe, juicy orchard fruits, bergamot, integrated oak spices and plenty of finesse and flare keeping it lively through a textured finish. (93)”   This Chardonnay stands out for its elegance and finesse - a true joy to savor."
