Pale in color with a lovely varietal chard nose. Lots of pear/apple. On the mid palate the wine displays some beautiful fruit to match the nose, nice pear and apple coming through. On the medium length finish the wine is smooth displaying lots of nice vanilla notes. I would give it a solid 89. A very nice chard! The LCBO say full bodied and rich, I would agree!
