Age worthy and drinkable but the 2014 so much more approachable.

Bright fruit, good complexity, really well balanced. Great starter wine with salads, seafood apps, or roast chicken . Bravo CB

Not my preferred style of Chardonnay but intriguing nonetheless. Very very pale colour with a nose of lemon curd. Very acidic on the palate with the faintest whiff of oak and Malo cream. I read that this vineyard was originally planted for sparkling wine and it is reminiscent of a blanc de blancs style with lots of acidity and minerality. Originally $60 Canadian, which is too much, but marked down to $35, excellent value at that price if you’re fond of Chablis style, cool climate chard.

Very pale colour with delicate grapefruit bouquet. Interesting taste - lightly buttery Chardonnay with grapefruit notes and an acidic backbone that almost makes it like a blend of Sauvignon blanc with Chardonnay. Slightly waxy aftertaste. Would be interesting to revisit in a few years to see how some bottle age changes matters.
