LCBO Note Status
TASTING NOTE: Lifted, enticing orange-peel aromas, fresh mint and a faint mealy note too. Intriguingly edgy - almost a bit like a low-sulphur style, although there's nothing unfresh here. Loads of cereal and dried hay on the finish - lovely to taste such esoterica within Chardonnay. When to drink: 2017-2021. Score - 17 (out of 20) (Richard Hemming, MW, jancisrobinson.com, July 17, 2018) Price $ 24.95
