Peller Estates Chardonnay Niagara Peninsula Vqa Private Reserve 2005

Member Review by mikebvew:

12/17/2011 2009 vintage Rich and fresh acidity gives way to crisp apples and pears with subtle oak toastiness, vanilla, and a smooth citrusy finish. Medium body, Medium acidity with a smooth long finish. One of the best expressions of a poor 2009 Ontario vintage, but this chardonnay seems to have had no harmful effects. This style of Chardonnay really reminds me of some Chablis producers and would go really well with a lot of seafood dishes including lobsters with butter!

He envisioned a day when Canadians, like Europeans, would come to appreciate premium-quality wines and enjoy sharing them with family and friends.

As the seeds of his dream were firmly taking root out West, he began looking eastward. Many years and countless setbacks later, he and my father, Joe (who was by then very much involved in the family business), finally made a breakthrough. An offer to purchase a winery and winemaking license in Ontario was accepted in the spring of 1969. Read less
