Availability: Direct from the winery here and VQA stores
Production: 876 cases
Date Tasted: June 12th, 2015
Tasting Notes: Simply, a refreshing white wine that will put a smile on your face - especially, a sun-drenched face connected to a body lounging on a patio. The 2014 edition of Chill is comprised of 39.3% Pinot Gris, 15.2% Semillon, 15.1% Gewurztraminer, 11.1% Muscat, 9.1% Chardonnay, 7.2% Viognier and 3% Riesling - don't worry, there won't be a test.
All you need to know, really, is this is a juicy, plump, fruit-forward, aromatic, off-dry blend, nicely balanced with plenty of tropical fruit acidity and grounded by a light vein of mineral notes on the nose and palate. Finishes (nearly) dry with lingering citrus peel flavours and a hint of spice. Enjoy this wine in its youth. Drink now-2017.
