Pale to slightly golden in color with a lovely apple/pear nose. On the mid palate the wine matches the nose with vibrant, varietal apple and pear. It’s nice and creamy and rich. There some nice vanilla notes as well. On the medium length finish the wine displays some nice acidity. I would give it a solid 88+. Not in the LCBO but available from the winery for $25.15. A beautiful example of an oaked chard, right up my alley! I wish I had more 🙁

From the winery’s web site:

This Chardonnay was  aged for 8 months in fine French Oak. With enticing aromas of peach and nectarine mix with vanilla bean and fresh baked bread on the nose. The palate delivers bright and lively peach and honeydew fruit complimented by a rich buttery backbone. Enjoy this complex wine on its own or match with Braised meats (lamb shank, pork loin), smoked salmon, or pasta with creamy sauce.
