Giant Steps Chardonnay 2018

Pale in color with a nice apple and pear nose. On the mid palate the wine matches the nose with vibrant apple and pear coming through. This is a fruit forward, elegant, unoaked (or lightly oaked) chard. On the medium length finish the wine displays some nice acidity, nice and dry. If you prefer your chards unoaked this is a good one, but an expensive one. I’d give it an 88 or so. From the LCBO web site, check stock:

In terrific form. It captures you from the outset. Stone fruit, custard powder, toasted bran and cedar spice notes have sparks flying in the glass. Crushed fennel too, particularly through the aftertaste. It attacks with flavour from the start and maintains a good pace throughout. The finish takes care of itself. Special Value. Drink by: 2025. Score – 95. (Campbell Mattinson,, Aug. 1, 2019)
