Bottle Per Case : 1 x 750 ml
Food Pairing : Rich Fish, Salad, Vegetables, White Meat
This is the second vintage Tawse has produced from the Lenko Chardonnay Vineyard, the oldest in the Niagara Region. Pioneers of Vinifera grape growing in this area, the Lenko family recognized the potential of the local terroir for growing Chardonnay. The combination of old vines and exceptional land results in a beautiful wine. Aging 12 months in 50% new French oak gives way to aromas of big oak, minerality and shy tropical fruit. The palate is tart and toasty with flavours of cantaloupe on the long smooth finish.

Situated on the lower slopes of the Niagara Escarpment, Tawse is a family-owned organic winery. A life-long lover of wine, Burgundy in particular, founder Moray Tawse purchased the Cherry Avenue property in 2001 after realizing the great potential of the Niagara Escarpment as a word-class cool-climate wine region. In 2005, he opened his state-of-the-art winery in Vineland, complete with a six-level, gravity-flow design, geo-thermal system and a wetland bio-filter.
The inspiration for Moray’s eponymous Niagara property came from his love of Burgundian Pinot Noir and Chardonnay. Uniting traditional winemaking techniques with state-of-the-art technology, Tawse and the award-winning winemaking team of Paul Pender and Rene Van Ede, is dedicated to producing terroir-driven wines of exceptional elegance, depth and character.
At Tawse, winemaking begins in the vineyards. We proudly apply rigorous organic methods to every aspect of our production from grape-growing to winemaking and Ecocert seals appear on all wines made from our estate fruit.
Today, having acquired over 200 acres (5 vineyards) and being named Canadian Winery of the year in 2010, 2011, 2012, and 2016, Tawse Winery now produces 30,000 cases of wine and has one of the largest portfolios of organic wines in the Niagara region.
