Taste it Again / Lost & Found

On occasion, I’ll take a wine I like and put it away in a “special box” for a few years to see how it will age … below you will read happened to those wines. On the other hand, there are wines that get “lost” in my wine cellar with nary a review ever written - some have turned into golden Treasures, others supreme Trash and then there are those that fall somewhere in-between (Tolerable). We’ll look at those here too. (New wines are being added all the time so keep coming back):

Taste it Again : Westcott 2013 Estate Chardonnay

11 Mar 2019

Westcott 2013 Chard Estate


(December 4, 2018) ... My limit on Chardonnay is usually about 6-7 years old, this one is right in that wheelhouse of those older Chardonnays limits, and I was wondering just how this wine was going to be. 2013 was a pretty good year for Chardonnay in Ontario because it was cool, but if memory serves, also quite wet ... this wine seems to be in a very good place right now: sure it's golden in colour but that's really the only thing giving away it's age, get past that and you'll get lovely acidity, subtle spiced-butterscotch, and even some notes of baked apple cobbler.

here's the original review
