No. 99 Wayne Gretzky Estates Unoaked Chardonnay Vqa Niagara Peninsula Vqa 2008

Member Review by trobbs:

Winemaker's Notes (from the bottle): Estate No. 99 Chardonnay from the 2008 vintage is an alluring, approachable take on one of Niagara's perennial favourites. Both nose and palate show a fine balance and delicate interplay between softer notes of white peach and pear, and a lively backbone of zesty lemon citrus and complex minerality. Matches well with paella, fettuccine alfredo, or herbed pork tenderloin. Cheers and drink responsibly! My own comments: Agreed with the notes above, but found it a bit more acidic than I normally prefer for an unoaked chardonnay. It was a little heavier on the palate than I normally prefer in this category as well. That being said, it's a good value.
