Southbrook Triomphe Chardonnay 2012 (Niagara) - Wine Review



Wine Review of 2012 Southbrook Triomphe Chardonnay from VQA Niagara-on-the-Lake, Ontario, Canada
This is the 3rd wine sample I'm reviewing from Southbrook Vineyards (here are reviews of their Triomphe Cab Franc Rosé and Triomphe Cabernet Sauvignon).

All the grapes for this certified organic Chardonnay were sourced from 3 different estate vineyards within Niagara-on-the-Lake. It was released in Vintages last February and there is currently good inventory remaining on shelves.


SOUTHBROOK TRIOMPHE CHARDONNAY 2012 - VQA Niagara-on-the-Lake, Ontario, Canada (#172338) (D) - $22.95

Wine Label for 2012 Southbrook Triomphe Chardonnay from VQA Niagara-on-the-Lake, Ontario, Canada
Tasting Note:
Screw cap. Fruit-driven apple and pear aromas of medium intensity. Medium+ bodied palate with balanced acids. Apple and pear flavours with a distinct caramel note on the lengthy finish that also shows some minerality. Oak is definitely in the background. Just off-dry and nicely balanced. Serve only lightly chilled. Recommended. Score: 88+ pts
