Hidden Bench Estate Winery 2008 Estate Chardonnay (Beamsville Bench) Niagara Peninsula - Ontario

Availability: Direct from winery
Cost: $32
Alcohol: 13.1%
Date Tasted: August 6th, 2010

Tasting Notes: Brilliant in every way. Concentration, crispness and character. A simply divine Chardonnay from Beamsville Bench producer Hidden Bench Estate Winery. Caramel, butter, oak, melon and mineral aromas on the intense nose with similar flavours on the dry, creamy textured palate. Lots of oak notes throughout but it never feels burdened due to the excellent balance. Slight bit of spice lingers on the long finish.

This is an excellent, high quality Chardonnay made from fruit blended from three of the winery's Beamsville vineyards. Enjoy now or hold for further development. Drink 2010-2015.
