750ML Oaked Chardonnay 2012
Each year Smokie likes to turn his hand to something new. Using traditional French barrels, Smokie oak fermented and aged a lovely Chardonnay grape from Niagara to produce this lovely and lemony liquid gold. It starts off with inviting aromas of apples and butterscotch with a slight hint of vanilla and tobacco. Reminiscent of the nose, the palate has rich fruit and hints of smoke rounded off with a medium to long fruit acid finish. The perfect guest at any backyard BBQ, this wine pairs beautifully with baby back ribs and pulled pork sliders. Drink now or lie down 2 to 3 years.
