Winemaking Notes

This is the second vintage Tawse has produced from the Lenko Vineyard Chardonnay, the oldest in the Niagara Region. Pioneers of Vinifera grape growing in this area, the Lenko family recognized the potential of our local terroir for growing Chardonnay. The combination of old vines and exceptional soil and location results in a beautiful wine. Aged 12 months in 50% new French oak, this wine displays marked aromas of oak, tropical fruit and a hint of minerality . On the palate, it is crisp yet toasty with ripe flavours of cantaloupe, vanilla and oak spice and a long and smooth finish.

Growing Conditions

From the mature vines of the Lenko Farm, farmed conventionally and hand-harvested.

All prices include Ontario bottle deposits; $0.20 for bottles of 750 mL and $0.10 for bottles of 375 mL and less.
