Tasting Notes

The 2011 vintage created classic Chardonnays with refreshing acidity and elegant minerality. Our Reserve Chardonnay, made with the highest quality fruit from our very own Limestone Vineyard, is no exception. The medium-bodied Chardonnay was barrelfermented using indigenous yeasts and aged 12 months in French oak. The nose is pretty, with enticing notes of white flower, tropical fruit, a hint of flirtiness On the palate, apple and ripe pear dominate, rounded out by lush texture alluding to stonefruit and pineapple, a hint of oak spice and a pleasing finish.

The Producer

Redstone Winery

In his quest to explore terroir, Moray Tawse leaves no stone unturned. First came his namesake winery in Vineland, ON. Then it was Marchand-Tawse and Domaine Tawse in Burgundy. And now Redstone Winery, in Beamsville, ON.

Moray purchased the Lincoln Lakeshore property, formerly Thomas and Vaughan Estate Winery, in 2009, citing that it was an opportunity to explore a different terroir that he simply couldn’t pass up. Inspired by the red dust which covered everything, including his boots, the first time he strolled the vineyard, he named the new winery Redstone, for its intensely red clay soil and large stones.

The 38-acre estate vineyard, farmed organically, is perfect for maturing late-ripening varietals including Merlot, Cabernet Franc, Cabernet Sauvignon and Syrah. There is also Pinot Gris on the property. Riesling, Sauvignon Blanc, and Chardonnay from recently acquired Limestone vineyard will round out the estate portfolio.

After working closely with the winemakers for over four years, Jessica Otting took on the Assistant Winemaker role in 2018, and as of 2020 assumed the role of Winemaker for both Tawse and Redstone Winery.
