RESERVE CHARDONNAY 2015 VQA Prince Edward County
Vintage Assessments Tasting Note Producer CASA-DEA
Bright medium deep straw colour. Extremely spicy, honeyed, tropical, pineapple nose with lots of leesy notes. Fairly dry, medium bodied, very spicy, cedar-driven, mature, stewed apple-lemon flavours with some tropical pineapple notes on the lingering, high acid, resiny finish. Not for me. Has 12.7% alcohol and 2 g/L residual sugar. You can safely ignore the totally out-of-date tasting note appearing in the Vintages Catalogue. CSPC 546812

TASTING NOTE: This is pure elegance and the definition of balance. Apples and spice are what you will find from the nose. The mouthfeel of this wine is satisfying. It has a nice creaminess on the mid palate, but it does sit light and finishes clean with nice acidity. The bottle says this has spent 8 months in oak barrels but everything you might expect from the barrel - vanilla, spice, butterscotch - are nice and subtle. There is very nice depth to this wine but somehow it feels restrained. I would love to pour this for someone who is a Chardonnay skeptic, I'm certain that will change a few minds.
