||Dry White Wine
||Twenty Mile Bench
This wine was made from the block of Chardonnay that was not only “the last Chardonnay standing”, but also the last picking of the entire harvest for 2017.
We left this block of Chardonnay well past the normal picking time for this early ripening variety, with the intention of pushing the envelope on ripeness to create an over-the-top bold expression of Ontario Chardonnay.
Fermented dry, to a staggering 14.8 % alcohol, this wine has the concentration of flavours and depth of texture to carry that alcohol, and integrate it un-noticeably into a full, rich and round, overtly expressive version of Chardonnay while maintaining all the attributes to be envied in a “cool climate” Chardonnay.
