|Bright medium straw colour. Fairly intense, slightly cedary, spicy, faintly honeyed, ripe melon-apple-lemon nose with some mineral notes. Dry, medium bodied, harmonious, slightly spicy, fairly tangy, ripe apple-lemon-melon purée flavours with a lingering, gently toasty finish. Ready-to-drink. The first bottle presented had some cork taint (TCA) notes. This REPEAT has 13.5% alcohol and 2 g/L residual sugar. TONY ASPLER / 88.5-points / BUY - Slightly reductive nose of apple and oak spice; medium-boded, dry, apple and pineapple flavors with well-integrated oak and balancing acidity.

|TASTING NOTE: This is a quite fine, elegant lighter style of chardonnay with well meshed apple, spice and citrus front and centre, and oak well in the background - a style Ontario can do well, and should do more often. It is very well balanced and well fruited with a hint of sweetness upfront but a dry clean finish. Very good length. Score - 89 (David Lawrason, winealign.com, June 14, 2018)
