Pondview 2017 Chardonnay, Bella Terra

Taken from Pondview’s 32-year-old estate Chardonnay vines, it is then barrel fermented and aged 22 months in a mix of new, one-year-old and neutral barrels (one-third each). This is one of those big, bold and rich Chardonnays but has the Ontario acidity to calm it down so it doesn’t weigh heavily on the tongue. Creamy vanilla, apple, butterscotch and white peach all show up to play with a touch of smoky darting around the edges, but overall, this is a very buttery version of Chardonnay and it certainly straddles the Cali-line (thank you Ontario acidity).  Price: $39.95 – Rating: ****
