Ontario Reviews

Daniel Lenko 2010 Chardonnay, Old Vines
It’s nice to see Danny finally playing nice with the LCBO, he has been a renegade for so long it actually seemed destined that he and the liquor board would never see eye-to-eye. But the people of Ontario are lucky he finally made peace because they get to try this lovely Chardonnay made from vines planted in 1959 (quite possibly the oldest planting of the grape in Canada – so how’s that for a piece of history). Buttery baked apple and toffee greet the nose while on the palate there is plenty of baking spice, apple, vanilla and butterscotch. Lots of new American oak was used in the making of this wine (80%) and it shows, but the fruit is rich enough to handle it. This is a real winner. Price: $22.95 - Rating: ****+
