Rather spicy, mature, intense, lemony, tropical fruit cocktail nose with perhaps an over-abundance of cedary notes. Has 13.7% alcohol and 4 residual sugar. Ready to drink. CSPC 287268

TASTING NOTE: The vines that grew this Chardonnay were planted 40 years ago by Paul Bosc, back when French wine grapes were almost unheard of in Niagara. It's a rich, creamy Chard showing spice, toast and sweet cedar along with ripe citrus and pineapple, and the finish is luxuriously long. Savour with lobster rolls. (Vintages panel, March 2018) Price $ 27.95
Bottle Size 750 mL
Tasting Date vintages release - October 27, 2018
Cases bought 82 (12 bottles per case)
