2021 The Loyalist Chardonnay

$28

VQA Ontario 

100% cool ferment in stainless steel at 14 degrees for 10 days. 30 days on lees, no malolactic fermentation. Zero oak contact.

Citrus, white flowers and under-ripe cantaloupe open on the nose, with Granny Smith apple and Kaffir lime filling in the edges. Firm and crisp with bright acidity, ample fruit carries through to a stone salty finish. Impressive length with great minerality. Made with 100% locally sourced fruit. 

"Lifted and alluring aromas waft easily from this gem of a delicious and affordable smooth and mellow chardonnay—floral and tropical fruit aromas followed by delicious palate flavours of pineapple, mango and ripe apricot along with citrus and mineral notes persist to and through the lingering finish and mouth-watering aftertaste that’s crisp, clean and refreshing."
-Vic Harradine (Wine Current)
