Bachelder Hill of Wingfield Chardonnay 2020

Twenty Mile Bench, Niagara Peninsula, Ontario, CanadaAnyone who has ever sat through a chardonnay dissertation by Thomas Bachelder will know why he decided this particular piece of dirt should be tagged the Hill of Wingfield. A hill is a hill, while a gentle slope is not. Bachelder brings his critical eye and soft hands to this beautifully structured chardonnay that opens with a touch of honey and fullness of flavour up front, but gets down to business with a mineral, stony, citrus, limestone sculpted underbody that doesn’t quit throughout the finish. Long, complex, and contemplative, this type of Next World chardonnay will keep the Burgundians awake at night.Tasted: 29 November 2022Tasted by: Anthony GismondiPrices:
