Closson Chase 2015 Vineyard Chardonnay
Prince Edward County, Ontario
ON $39.95 (148866)
Made in Closson Chase's hallmark rich and rewarding style, the newly released estate vineyard Chardonnay is an impressive statement about the quality of the 2015 vintage from one of the County's founders. (Sadly there's not much to go around, so it's case of act now...) Low yields, 100 percent barrel fermentation, 100 percent malolatic conversion, 16 months in French oak (10 percent new) makes for a compelling and concentrated white. Winemaker Keith Tyers has been a great addition to the cellar, making wines that are consistently impressive across the board, with better purity of expression, balance and character. This is a ripe and mouthfilling white, with appealing weight and complexity that's nicely countered by refreshing citrussy acidity that adds precision and energy to the palate. Highly Recommended. 236 cases.
