With it being Canada Day today, it's only appropriate to drink Canadian wine. As such, I've chosen this locally made Chardonnay from Ontario. It was purchased from last September's Vintages release, which focused on wines from Ontario. This delicious white wine is still available in very small quantities throughout the GTA.
LAILEY CHARDONNAY 2010 - VQA Niagara Peninsula, Ontario, Canada (#193482) (XD) - $19.95
From the very good 2010 vintage. Yellow apple and tropical fruit aromas from the cork. Fresh, ripe aromas of tropical fruits (pineapple), apple, butter, popcorn, and hints of barnyard on the nose. Medium-bodied and a crisp mouthfeel with flavours of butterscotch, apple, and tangy tropical notes. Slight creaminess on the mid-palate. Hints of smoke on the long, smooth finish. Delicious! Enjoyed with homemade Halibut and Chips and Onion Rings.
