(December 2, 2016) ... Another sparkling wine Friday / Chardonnay night and the wines were an excellent array of subtlety and voluptuousness.
Tawse 2013 Limestone Riesling (Ontario) ... great way to kick off the evening with a bubble that wears its acidity on its sleeve while showing off green apple and lemon flavours.
Cono Sur 2015 Chardonnay, Quebrada Alta (Chile) ... a young version of Chardonnay from Chile that shows lots of fresh white fruit and a gorgeous hit of vanilla cream.
Sandhill 2010 Chardonnay (British Columbia) ... my limit for older Chardonnay is about 7-8 years (with some exceptions), this six year old Sandhill is still a beauty with aromas of peach, vanilla, and bruised apple; on the palate, it was creamy yet with good acidity for balance and finished off with green apple, peach and pineapple on a finish that seemed to go on for days.
