Closson Chase Vineyards
2020 Vineyard Chardonnay
VQA Prince Edward County
Whole cluster pressed then 100% barrel fermented. Less than 10% new oak, the rest in seasoned French oak barrels.
Canned peaches in syrup, floral tones, honey and fresh pie dough complete the nose. The mouth is round yet fresh with peach skins and nutty tones appearing on the palate. Nice acidity cleanses and leads to a layered finish with some good lengths.
"It's quite remarkable how much flavour and depth can be coaxed out of these bony, stony soils, with little artifice applied, just good farming and sensible winemaking. Similar quality wines from many other places would easily fetch double."
-John Szabo, MS (Wine Align)
Serve with: Pasta in a garlic lemon cream sauce, grilled pork chop (bone in), creamy cheeses.
