Bachelder Saunders Haut Organically Grown Chardonnay 2020

Beamsville Bench, Niagara Peninsula, Ontario, CanadaThe old vines are farmed organically on clay/limestone soils at the Saunders Beamsville Bench site. The style is generous, if not soft, yet a stony, flinty reductive note on the mid-palate adds structure to the tropical pineapple and starfruit that fill the back end. The style is medium-rich with a honey and toasted nut finish. A solid effort that is drinking well now but should age effortlessly into 2027.Tasted: 29 November 2022Tasted by: Anthony GismondiPrices:
