Welcome Angels Gate to the Ontario wineries having excellent Chards & this one is complex, elegant with creamy buttery notes, not overtly oaky, good acidity & tropical fruit to balance it out
Tasting Note: Light gold in colour with good acidity, a medium intense nose & a long length on the finish. Wine features buttered toast, lemon, clementine, Fuji apple, peach, pineapple, mango, honeydew melon, caramel, honey, vanilla, oak spice, flint minerality & Easter Lily on the nose.
Interesting Point: Thanks to my friend, Mike who recommended this wine.
Pairings: Drink now or over the next 3-4 of years on its own or pair it with crab Alfredo.
My Opinion: Highly Recommended
