This Chardonnay was hand picked from the Niagara College Vineyard in the St. David's Bench sub-appellation, then de-stemmed with partial crushing and fermented on skins for 14 days.  The wine then went through malolactic fermentation in mostly neutral French oak barrels with a small portion in stainless steel.  Aged 7 months before bottling.

This wine’s inspiration is texture! Structure from tannins in the skins, combined with a certain roundness and richness that comes from malolactic fermentation and barrel ageing that creates an overall balance and textural experience. 

Unfiltered and bottled with lees. No Sulphites added.
