We grabbed this one at the winery while on our tour of Niagara on the lake. Pale in color with a mild nose. On the mid pallet this is softer well made chard dominated by some oak, some vanilla, slightly creamy with some lovely fruit coming through. There’s also some lovely varietal Niagara on the lake minerality. The finish is on the lighter side of medium in length. This is a beautiful wine, very food friendly. We paired it with Shrimp penne Alfredo and it went very well. I would give this wine an 89-90. Very nice. Not in the LCBO so you will have to take a trip out to the winery to get it. $19.95. The 2009 is in the LCBO for $17.95. Not sure how it compares.
