Our Benchmark Chardonnay, The Rusty Shed, is crafted by meticulously tasting barrel samples after they've had nearly a year to develop and soften. Our owner, Ed Madronich, and the winemaking team utilize their honed palates to select the most characterful and age-worthy oak barrels of Chardonnay every vintage. These selections are then blended together creating the infamous favourite, "Rusty".

Tasting Notes

The newest incarnation of The Rusty Shed Chardonnay is the product of a humid, but moderate growing season followed by a warm and dry fall bringing optimal harvest conditions. This wine first shows citrus fruit coupled with chalky minerality, all vibrating around a backbone of acidity. The palate then opens up and highlights sweet spices and a creamy texture resulting from 10 months of development in French Oak barrels. Delicious now, but will age gracefully for a decade or more.
