VERY COMPELLING & HIGHLY ENJOYABLE, 90PT CHARDONNAY
Showing a pale golden hue, with lemon butter and thyme flowers and a slight popping corn accent. Showcasing green apple and lemon with a hint of fruit flavour.
Rich fish dishes, roasted chicken and accompanying vegetables.
Fending off the chills. One glass after work makes the day’s stress just melt away.
Why we're drinking this
This Chardonnay has the glow and the zeal that can only be described as classy. Southbrook is the first organic and biodynamic certified winery in Canada and has earned numerous recognitions from critics. Their philosophy is simple, “to make the finest wines possible in a respectful, local, light-on-the-land fashion”. If your New Years resolution was to be more health conscious and to give back, here is a “clean” wine to help you enjoy a guilt-free glass or two.
The wine’s aroma is limestone-mineral foreword, also showing lemon, lime and yellow apple. The palate has a fresh acidity and is quite dry, though it reveals sweeter flavours of apple, lemon curd, lemon sorbet and vanilla, while simultaneously echoing a mineral profile of limestone, river rocks and gravel. Subtle, underripe tropical fruits will develop in interesting ways as the wine ages.
