The Henry of Pelham Chardonnay comes from the rare south-facing vineyards on the Short Hills Bench. The wine is medium straw-yellow, with fairly obvious oak-derived resin and vanilla notes, followed by green herbs, a hint of spearmint, and bright lemon, green apple and melon aromas. It is dry, with crisp acidity that nicely modulates the underlying oak influence. The fruit and herbs are fresh on the palate, and the finish is lengthy. This drinks well now, but another year or more in cellar will allow the oak to integrate, and add to the harmony and elegance. Henry of Pelham continues to provide a compelling value with this label. • LCBO Release 03/06/2017 • LCBO id#268342 • Find it at your nearest LCBOHENRY OF PELHAM FAMILY EST. WINERY (Agent)
