    Chardonnay is one of the most popular of French white wine grapes. This firm, dry Chardonnay is vibrant, fresh and enticing

    Like the pheasant, our Chardonnay grape vines have adapted well to the sun, soil, climate and latitude of Pelee Island.

    These grapes were harvested in September when they had reached 20.1 degrees Brix. They were then fermented for two to four weeks in stainless steel tanks and then left to age for another 6 months in stainless steel tanks.

    ALCOHOL: 13%

    Estate Bottled

    Tasting Notes:
    Hints of exotic melon and banana are what makes our Unoaked Chardonnay such a delightfully fresh wine. Tanya Mitchell – winemaker

    A vibrant Chardonnay with sweet melon aromas accented with a fresh hint of lemon. The flavour of juicy melon and banana on the palate balances perfectly with a subtle citrus finish.

    Oxley Estate Chardonnay 2013 Review

    Winemaker’s Notes:

    ** Selected as BEST WHITE WINE at the 2014 Shores of Erie Wine Competition **

    Our 2013 Chardonnay is intriguing from the first pour. The tantalizing golden-green colour leads you to a mysterious mingling of aromas – fresh straw, clover leaf, baked apple, orange blossom and jasmine. The palate flows beautifully… green apple, lemon, banana and almond, with notes of honey and lychee fruit bringing roundness to the mouth feel. Signature cool-climate acidity hums through the refreshing and harmonious finish.

    Winemaker’s Notes:
    Gravity flow into new French oak barrels really enchanted this wine’s bouquet

    Like a fresh French Brioche, this wine opens with the scent of fruit, butterscotch and vanilla. It balances the best of the smooth and buttery barrel against the fresh fruit and crisp backbone of the wine.

    Colchester Ridge Estate Winery (CREW)

    Winemaker’s Notes:
    A citrus and apple nose heralds this fruit-driven unoaked Chardonnay that is refreshment in a glass. Honey Crisp apples and Bosc pear coupled on the palate with pleasing minerality, balance this crisp and bright white wine. Pair with cream based dishes, summer salads, seafood and more.
