Serve up an Award-Winning Chardonnay from Prince Edward County
This Two Thousand Seventeen Chardonnay from Morandin Wines won a silver medal at the 2019 Wine Align National Wine Awards of Canada. With a 91 score, UK wine expert and writer Jamie Goode describes as “Nice pure fruit here. Shows pear, white peach and a nice citrus drive. Clean with some density to it, and a touch of nut and spice complexity. Very impressive”. Morandin Wines rows all their grapes at their estate, Sangreel Vinyards in Wellington, Ontario. They primarily supply top restaurants in South Western Ontario, including the Drake Devonshire and Toronto’s farm-to-table Montecito. There are less than 1,000 bottles available for this delicious Chardonnay. There is also free delivery with a minimum purchase of 6 bottles. Time to get Dad a fancy bottle and maybe just one for yourself.
