Tawse Chardonnay, 750 mL (2015)
An excellent, award-winning year for Quarry Road Vineyards! This stylish chard is very Chablis-like, with a lemony, nuanced hint of barrel on the nose and great flinty tension on the palate. Minerally and leesy, it's long and clean with a very satisfying limestone streak winding through the elegantly lingering finish. Lean structure but with breadth of flavour, it's a masterful effort. Exciting chardonnay. Tasted and reviewed in June 2017. Platinum medal winner at the 2018 National Wine Awards of Canada. Score - 93. (D.J. Kearney, winealign.com, Nov. 28, 2017) Another 3 years of aging has only improved the flavour of this wine. It will reach its maximum tasting potential soon and should be consumed in the next 12 months for the best experience.
