Ridgepoint 2005 Chardonnay

We bought this wine at the winery and is not available at the LCBO. The wine has a nice honey yellowish color to it. This wine is a VERY mild Chardonnay. Maybe leaning more towards the Chablis style than the Californian style. No butteryness to it with a mild finish. I paired it with a piece of pan fried Cod and it went ok, but not stellar. The wine is good but not great, and for the $20 ticket you can get better wines. I would not be rushing out to get more. That said the winery has a lovely country style restaurant that serves home style Italian cooking for a very reasonable price. This is definitely not one of Niagara’s finest. These guys have even tried to plant Nebiolo grapes (the ones used in Barolos). Needless to say so far this has not gone well with production being low in good years and zero in bad. I have not tasted that one so can’t comment on the quality.
