Category: White Wine
Location: LCBO General Listing
Country: United States
Format: 750 mL
Producer: Canyon Road
Alcohol: 13% Alcohol/Vol.
An entry Chard that has character, and I really like its creamy texture, but it’s not fat, tropical fruit yet has acidity as backbone and it’s only 13% alcohol. May I stress that it only has 13% alcohol for a California Chard!
Positives: Bright gold in colour featuring pineapple, mango, lemon meringue, yellow plums, yellow apples, crème brûlée, butterscotch, cinnamon and dill.
Interesting Point: Canyon Road Winery is located in Alexander Valley, which is one of my favourite AVAs.
Ageability: Drink now or in the next 3-5 years on its own or pair it with triple cream Brie.
My Opinion: Recommended
