Showcase Wild Ferment Chardonnay 2015

View Larger

Showcase wines are the true expression of our passion for making great wine. Crafted from the best vineyard sites in Niagara, our unrushed approach to winemaking shines through in every bottle.

This medium-bodied, slightly rich yet still refreshing Chardonnay achieves a perfect balance between fruit and toasty flavours. Clear and bright with a lemon yellow hue and a bouquet of toasty new oak, vanilla, grilled lemon, barrel spice and baked apple lead you to enjoy flavour notes of lemon, apple and spicy oak. Finishing with lingering notes similar to the palate and site specific minerality. Serve lightly chilled at 15 to 17ºC. Enjoy now through 2020.

Serve with smoked chicken risotto; wild mushroom rice stuffing and your holiday turkey; cream sauces on pasta tossed with shrimp or scallops; roast chicken; grilled fillets of firm fish on cedar plank; puff pastry-wrapped salmon or chicken; creamy potato dishes; truffled brie; apple-wood smoked cheddar.

The Chardonnay grapes for this vintage were harvested from Oliveira Vineyard, one of our best vineyard sites in Niagara, and were hand harvested, hand sorted, gently pressed, and after fermentation aged 'sur lie' in French oak barriques for 11 months. For greater depth of flavour, our winemaker bottled this wine unfiltered.

This 'wild ferment' literally refers to 'wild' yeast used in the fermentation process. All vineyards have natural yeast that settles on the skin of grapes and while using this type of yeast makes fermenting the wine less predictable, the reward is a wine with greater complexity and character.
