Closson Chase Vineyards
2021 Vineyard Chardonnay
VQA Prince Edward County
White flowers, ripe apple, and Bartlett pear with hints of spice open in the glass. Nutty tones and crème caramel mix with wet stone and citrus in the mouth. Anise, florals, and honey dance together on a seamless palate of fruit and acid. Baking spice finish with nice length.
Sourced entirely from our estate vineyards. Whole cluster pressed, then fermented and aged in French oak barrels with less than 10% new oak. Full malolactic fermentation in barrel.
"Pure delight, vintage after vintage. Sexy aromas of exotic herbs and incense waft easily from the glass after a couple of gentle swirls. Palate flavours make their way with a gusher of tang and smooth and mellow mouthfeel of deft balance, purity of fruit and a monumentally long and appealing finish and aftertaste dominated by lemon, lime, minerality and; In a word… delicious."

Serve with chicken piccata or arancini stuffed with bocconcini cheese.
