2020 Saunders Vineyard Chardonnay
A complex and easy-to-drink wine with hints of lemon curd, pastry and beeswax on the nose. Flavours of white, ripe peach, cantaloupe and honey lead to a long lasting, crisp finish.
A complex nose with hints of lemon zest, crushed stone minerality, baking spices, cardamom, and pastry. Delivering a large, round palate of ripe white peaches, grilled pineapple, honey and a whisper of vanilla lead to a long lasting, crisp finish.
Grapes were hand harvested from the Saunders Family farm Beamsville Bench sub-appellation where they have been farming organically since 2010. Whole clusters were gently pressed using our “long/slow” press cycle and slightly settled juice was transferred to French oak for fermentation. Five barrels were selected (two of which were new), after 10 months aging on lees, to make this single vineyard wine.
