Bachelder Wismer-Wingfield Chardonnay 2020

Twenty Mile Bench, Niagara Peninsula, Ontario, CanadaThe Wismer-Wingfield chardonnay fruit is the latest ripening parcel at Bachelder. It's also "the furthest from Lake Ontario (6.8 km!), at the highest elevation (169 metres at the very top). That makes its grapes the longest hanging among all the Bachelder chardonnay, which means the most intense flavours. But the prowess of pears and melons is tempered by the mineral chalky, stony notes that line walls and finish. It has all the hallmarks of Cru. All it needs is a decade of whinging at the government level to get it approved. Complex wine for thinking drinkers. Drink or hold, there is no rush here.Tasted: 29 November 2022Tasted by: Anthony GismondiPrices:
