2018 STONEBRIDGE VINEYARD CHARDONNAY
Stonebridge Vineyard is located on Line 5 in the Four Mile Creek sub-appellation of Niagara-on-the-Lake. The final wine, which underwent a partial malolactic conversion, giving the wine a rich texture, while retaining a crisp mouth feel. My primary goal for all of the 2027 wines is to showcase the vineyard’s ‘terroir.’ Stonebridge is an expressive example of this, with aromas of melon, vanilla and citrus.
These grapes were hand-harvested into 25 kg picking bins and whole bunch pressed to 600l/tonne. The wine was 100% barrel fermented in Burgundian oak, and is aged sur lie in barrel for 14 months before being bottled.
