Tasting Notes: This is an easy-going, barrel fermented Chardonnay from the Niagara Peninsula, priced well at under $15 and offering a nice combination of pear, apple and citrus fruit and oak-influenced characters of vanilla, butter and spice. Not overly complex, but a solid expression of classic Chardonnay orchard fruit with some added depth coming from a light vein of minerals on both the nose and palate. Drink now-2017.
