Tasting Notes

"Often the richest and most flashy single vineyard chardonnay from the impressive Tawse lineup, the 2017 Robyn's Block, from a fairly generous vintage, shows instead an unusually compressed and tightly wound palate, still showing a pinch of natural CO2 which, combined with lively acids, keeps the ensemble buoyant and lively. Wood and lees are nicely integrated, and the palate shows definite depth and concentration. Acids are zesty but ultimately more loose than the Quarry Road bottling, quite normal, but this Robyn's brings a new sense of verve and liveliness to the historical record. Drink or hold into the mid-late twenties without concern."

The Producer

Tawse Winery

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.
