Tasting Notes

Spilling over with poached pear and tangy citrus aromas, our Rebel Chardonnay is hopelessly refreshing.  Ripe white fruit and undercurrents of tropical notes contribute to the perfectly weighted body. This delightfully easy drinking Chardonnay is a direct result of gentle handling from start to finish.

2014 Rebel Chardonnay Reviews

Andre Proulx | Rating: ****| Review Date: April 2018

"This is a perfect Chardonnay to set on the table next to fried chicken, creamy pasta, or halibut (okay I went specific with the fish here … but any white fish would work). A little more restrained, and the lighter side of Chardonnay as a nice mineral note makes itself well established immediately in the glass. Aromas offer peach, apple and a restrained hint of vanilla. On the palate the fruit really tells the story here, but a vanilla and spice note pokes through reminding you that this wine has spent some time in barrel. This finishes clean, nice acidity keeps this light with just a hint of spice that lingers."

"A nice contrast to the top-of-the-line Civility Chardonnay, 16 Mile's 2014 Rebel delivers a ripe, rich and concentrated character. It's a style with immediate appeal thanks to an abundance of attractive fleshy fruit that glows in the glass. Coming from a single vineyard on the Beamsville Bench, the fruit was hand picked and sorted before pressing. The utmost winemaking TLC continued with fermentation with indigenous yeast in large format (300 litre) barrels and 19 months of aging, adding to the texture and complexity. Great value. 260 cases."
