TASTING NOTE: The wine is 100% barrel fermented with partial malo and then transferred to stainless steel, so no barrel aging, with 10 months on the lees. It has a pronounced mineral nose with notes of apple skin, pear and soft tropical fruits. It's creamy with chalky minerality and texture that highlights the ripe orchard fruits. Nothing is lost with the lack of oak in this wine; it's a pure expression of Niagara Chardonnay. Score - 90 (Rick VanSickle, winesinniagara.com, Dec. 7, 2016) Price $ 21.95
