$19.95What would summer be without the perfect patio or pool wine. Our 2016 Shine is a first vintage sparkling wine vinified using the Muscat grape. It is finished in an off-dry and very refreshing style. Look for notes of citrus and tree fruit on the nose.
The Chardonnay grape is revered the world over as the winemaker’s grape, as it presents the opportunity to leave a stamp of originality. Leaving said mark is equally important in both oaked and unoaked versions of this classic varietal. Our unoaked Chardonnay is meant to be a reflection of local terroir, as we believe that good viticultural practices are a key to crafting great wines.
Without the addition of oak we have allowed for several, specifically selected vineyards show the richness of the Niagara Peninsula. Upon first glance this wine has a soft, golden straw hue. Aromas of pear, green apple and lemon zest dominate the nose. The palate shows bright acidity and a light, clean body. The palate features notes of apple and citrus up front, followed by a slightly peachy finish.
This Chardonnay pairs nicely with cream sauce entrees, poultry, sausage, salmon and whitefish.
