2018 Chardonnay

Alcohol: 12.5%

“It is with much anticipation that we release one of our most sought after wines, the 2018 Chardonnay. Using only the finest French oak, this wine shows pronounced aromas of burnt sugar, rich tropical fruit, and candied lemon peel. The palate isn’t shy either, exhibit-ing flavours of juicy green apple and citrus fruit. This vintage is beautifully balanced with superb acidity and a thoughtful approach to barrel fermentation. Cellar until 2025 or enjoy with your favorite semi-hard cheese like Tête de Moine or Comté.”
Graham Pierce, Winemaker

A hot spring and warm and dry 2018 summer had the vineyards well advanced and in great condition leading in to the fall. Following this, a very cool August and September slowed ripening to a crawl. Thankfully dry conditions and a lack of frost events allowed the grapes to achieve ripe and pure fruit flavours, while still retaining fresh acidity and great fruit aromas. White wine grapes were harvested slightly later than average but still achieved great flavour ripeness and balance.
