A different style Chard that you wouldn’t normally find here in Ontario as it some oak, citric fruit, mild spice, minerality & smoothness. Score: 90/100

Tasting Note: Light bright gold in colour with good acidity, a light to medium intense nose & a fairly long length on the finish. Wine features lemon-lime, green apples, pear, persimmon, dill, cardamom, limestone & clay.

Negatives: None

Pairings: Drink this now or in the next 3-6 years & pair it with persimmon risotto with pancetta and goat cheese.

My Opinion: Highly Recommended
