Therapy Vineyards Chardonnay 2007

External Review:

Therapy Vineyards opened in 2005, taking over the winery premises formerly operated by Red Rooster (when the latter winery moved to larger quarters). The owners, primarily Albertan members of the Opimian Society, were so inspired by the vineyard’s pastoral setting they called it Therapy. The winery followed up on this theme by designing labels remarkably like the Rorschach ink blots used in psychotherapy.Fortunately, this quirky marketing is supported by the talents of a third-generation winemaker, Australian Marcus Ansems, whose family once owned Mount Langhi-Ghiran. Ansems has spent most of this decade in Canada, helping Creekside in Ontario through its first four vintages. He also did a vintage at Blasted Church in the Okanagan before taking over at Therapy last year.His training and heritage shows in this Chardonnay. Light gold in colour, the wine starts with lemony and buttery aromas which carry through to flavours of citrus and other tropical fruits, very nicely integrated with oak. The crisp acidity gives the wine a tangy, refreshing finish. 87 points.
