Bright, fresh tree fruits greet the nose with floral and stone characteristics filling in the background. More white tree fruit, spice, and caramel tones from the barrel fill in the palate. All flavours are matched with beautiful, balanced acidity. The finish is bright and refreshing, with nice length.
Sourced from K.J. Watson Vineyard in Niagara River. Destemmed and whole berry pressed. 50% fermented in stainless steel and 50% fermented in French oak barrels. Barrel-fermented wine went through full malolactic fermentation, with no malo on the stainless steel portion.
"Alluring aromas of ripe Bartlett pear, baking spice and notions of floral notes abound on the impressive nose of this balanced and beautiful chardonnay."

Serve with porchetta, mushroom risotto, or grilled cheese with caramelized onions and aged cheddar.
