TASTING NOTE: I poured a bottle of this wine over the holidays for dinner guests and they all loved it. It's a stunning cool-climate Chardonnay. The restrained scents of lemon zest, salt and stone; smooth almost oily texture; and understated flavours of lemon oil, buttered popcorn and white peach purée - all shot through with balancing acidity makes it taste instantly alluring and supremely drinkable. For a surefire pairing, serve it with broiled seafood with lots of butter for dipping. Score - 91 (Carolyn Evans Hammond, thestar.com, Jan. 12, 2018) Price $ 24.95
