Winemaking Notes

Tawse is proud to partner with Canadian music icon
and Order of Canada recipient Jim Cuddy to introduce
“Cuddy by Tawse” Chardonnay. Jim collaborated with
winemakers Paul Pender and Rene Van Ede to create this
premium barrel-fermented blend. Aged 12 months in French
oak, this wine displays aromas of Bosc pear, baking spice,
white flower and hints of wet stone minerality. Crips notes of
grapefruit are accompanied by apple and pear and a touch
of shy oak, resulting in a beautiful mouth feel on the palate.

Growing Conditions

Sourced from select Niagara Peninsula vineyards. Viticultural
practices included vertical shoot positioning, shoot thinning,
cluster thinning, hand leaf removal and hand harvest.

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

Professional Reviews

Beppi Crosariol Globe and Mail

Canadian musician and wine lover Jim Cuddy of Blue Rodeo fame, teamed with Moray Tawse to release a line of wines which, as with Blue Rodeo, are not exactly a solo act. Resident Tawse winemakers Paul Pender and Rene Van Ede did much of the heavy lifting here, so kudos to them for this fine effort. It’s medium-bodied, creamy and bright, with plump tropical fruit and pear notes, subtle buttered popcorn, vanilla and fresh acidity.
