Tawse Chardonnay (750ml)
Tawse Wine & Spirits is a family-owned organic winery and distillery situated on the lower slopes of the Niagara Escarpment. Founder Moray Tawse, inspired by his love of Burgundian Pinot Noir and Chardonnay, purchased 6 acres on the Cherry Avenue property in 2001, and in 2005 he opened his state-of-the-art winery complete with a six-level, gravity-flow design, geo-thermal system, and a wetland bio-filter. Since then, Tawse has become a four-time winner of the Canadian Winery of the Year award and grows grapes in five estate vineyards on over 100 acres across the Niagara region.
Tawse is focused on uniting traditional winemaking techniques with state-of-the-art technology, and dedicated to producing terroir-driven wines of exceptional elegance, depth and character.
This is a lightly toasty and zesty Chardonnay offering a wealth of complex flavours on the palate. Lemon curd, pear, Macadamia nut, honey and salted caramel notes. It is medium bodied and succulent thanks to an appropriate use of oak during winemaking that does not detract from the wine’s nervy freshness.
This is a blend of hand-harvested Chardonnay carefully sourced from select Niagara Peninsula vineyards. Sources grapes from throughout the region allows the winemaker to highlight vintage and terroir and to produce a balanced wine at a great value. The juice is fermented in stainless steel with some refining in oak, though overall this is a fresh and primary fruit driven Chardonnay.
