Domaine Queylus Tradition Chardonnay 2018

Niagara Peninsula, Ontario, CanadaFrom Niagara's limestone laced glacial till comes this ripe, rich, cushy chardonnay, courtesy of winemakers Thomas Bachelder and Kelly Mason. Organically grown, this was whole cluster pressed before a long wild ferment in French oak and 18 months' rest in barrel, 20-30% new. Ripe, full, lemon curd, baked yellow apple, toasted popcorn spicing is brightened with lemon peel and drawn with moderate acidity along the cushioned, leesy palate. Best for those used to a sun-ripened Cali chardy, but wanting to drink wisely from home.Tasted: 19 June 2020Tasted by: Treve RingPrices: ON 28.00 winery direct Producer: Domaine QueylusGrape: Chardonnay
