2013 Frost Road Chardonnay


Winemaking Note:
This single vineyard Chardonnay was hand harvested from Frost Road Vineyard in the heart of the Vinemount Ridge appellation . The gentle north facing slopes create the ideal cool conditions for growing premium Niagara Chardonnay. Hand sorted and gently whole cluster pressed to French oak barrels for fermentation. Following fermentation and a further 11 months of barrel ageing on their lees, 6 barrels were selected from the cellar that were considered exceptional and blended to produce this single vineyard wine. The wine was bottled in November of 2014.


Tasting Note:
This single vineyard Chardonnay is a classic example of the cooler
Vinemount Ridge appellation. Green apple and citrus layered over white flowers, gives way to some yeast derived aromas of fresh bread and baking spices from the French oak. Texture is creamy with a chalky dryness and a crisp finish make for a balanced, nuanced and contemplative wine. Enjoy on its own, or with baked pasta, and richer fish dishes. Drink from 2016-2020
