2014 Mission Hill Five Vineyards Chardonnay mini review

Slightly golden in color with a mild, varietal chard nose. On the mid palate the wine displays some nice apple/pear to match the nose. On the medium length finish the wine displays some nice mild vanilla and butterscotch. The fruit builds nicely in the mouth. This is a smooth lightly oaked (8 months) chard. Not a bad deal for the price. I would give it an 88 or so. Be careful to not serve this too cold or it will come across as bland. Note this is a general list product, not vintages (so you know where to look in your LCBO!). The LCBO call it light and Crisp, I think I’d agree.This is one of those Chards unoaked Chard lovers might be ok with …
