Sourced from our small ‘Vina de Casa’, a one-acre plot of Chardonnay Musqué clone 809, which are the first vines you see when you arrive at the estate. Prince Edward County is benefitted annually by not getting as many rain episodes as the rest of Ontario. One of the most fruitful benefits includes being one of the driest areas for grape growing in Ontario, and our Chardonnay Musqué welcomes the partial aridity. The wine was cold fermented in stainless steel tanks in order to preserve the perfumed orchard fruit aromas of our Chardonnay Musqué. To further preserve freshness, the Chardonnay Musqué was aged for a short period of about 4 ½ months and put into bottle in early May.
A mouth-watering, lively unoaked Chardonnay. Light lemon and mineral nose with subtle floral undertones. Opens with a refreshing grapefruit and green apple tang with notes of salinity, leading to a dry, stony back palette. Pairs well with crab cakes, mussels, or other summery seafood dishes. Also pairs nicely with sushi and sashimi.
