Grape Variety: Chardonnay
Category: White wine
Location Bought: Closson Chase Winery
Region: Prince Edward County, Ontario
Format: 750 mL
Producer: Closson Chase
Alcohol: 12.6% Alcohol/Vol.
I throw down a challenge to find any Californian high end Chard that is as good as this and with only 12.6% alcohol and under $35
Description: Old gold in colour with a medium to medium+ intense nose. This complex wine features medium toasted oak, butter, crème brulee, toasted marshmallows, lemon tart, tangerines, pink grapefruit, dill, ginger, roasted almonds, Anjou pear and apple crumble pie. Full body with good acidity and a long length
Interesting Points: The wine is on its last leg as it’s gone from fruity and mineral to tertiary notes, but still so good.
Drink now or in the next year on its own or pair it with grilled maple ginger pork chops.
