Introduction

"Situated on the lower slopes of the Niagara Escarpment, Tawse is a family-owned organic and biodynamic winery, voted Canada’s Winery of the Year in 2010, 2011, 2012 & 2016." The Sketches lineup from Tawse extends amazing value for everyday drinking, but with all the quality you expect from the estate line. This Chardonnay was sourced from hand-harvested, select Niagara Peninsula vineyards. Viticultural practices included vertical shoot positioning, shoot thinning, cluster thinning, hand leaf removal and hand harvest. The Sketches Chardonnay expresses a wine far above the price point, with depth and richness, along with finesse. This wine is our 'go-to' Canadian Chardonnay for everyday entertaining. Enjoy within the next year at 8 C.


How it looks

Soft, buttery yellow.

How it smells

The bountiful nose is full of fruit and floral aromas, the winery describes as, "vibrant notes of red apple, honeydew melon and a hint of white flower."

How it tastes

Medium bodied and plush mouthfeel, 12 months in French oak gives a round and rewarding presence on the palate. Lively acidity brightens notes of baking spices and vanilla from the oak. Rich melon, apple and flowers continue from the nose. The finish is extensive with the notes of blanched almonds and honeycomb.

Recommended food pairing

The winery suggests, "With its refreshing apple and melon notes, lush body and well-integrated oak, this medium-bodied Chardonnay pairs beautifully with seafood, poultry and richer vegetable based dishes. Try it with a seafood chowder, roast chicken with root vegetables or a spinach and butternut squash lasagna with a béchamel sauce."
