Tasting Notes

A decadent nose evokes images of fresh baked lemon tarts, juicy yellow pear and ripe white peaches.  Carefully constructed for ageability, our Civility Chardonnay shows brilliant expansive weight and is finished with gorgeous zingy minerality. Find focus and restraint in this elegant, delicately oaked wine.

"This is bottled unfiltered (as are most of the wines at this estate) with a minimum of intervention and a deft touch with French oak aging. The grapes are sourced from two vineyards on the Beamsville Bench. Such a gorgeous and penetrating nose of poached pear, apple, lemon, flinty minerality and subtle oak spices. It is rich and creamy on the palate with juicy orchard fruits, toasted vanilla and layered through a long, clean and fresh finish. Very tasty Bench Chardonnay."
