2017 Forgotten Row Chardonnay, Beamsville Bench VQA, Malivoire Wine

2017 Forgotten Row Chardonnay

Winemaker's Notes:

Tempting apple pie, cantaloupe, honeycomb and coconut greet the nose.  A taste finds a  fresh, smooth texture and flavours of green apple, baked bread, candied fruits, cashew and caramel.  

Harvested by hand from our Estate Vineyard on October 28th as grape sugars averaged 22.9° Brix.

The wine fermented in American oak barrels, almost a third of which were in first use.  A further eight months in barrel followed, after which, 146 cases were bottled in August 2018.

At the time of bottling, alcohol measured 13.5 %; residual sugar, 0 grams per Litre, titratable acidity, 5.4 grams per Litre and pH: 3.56.

Vegan friendly.

Food Companions:
Serve near 10° C with poached or grilled fish, roast turkey or fettuccine with cream sauce.
