Westcott Vineyards Chardonnay

Burgundian, elegant and toasty Chardonnay from the relatively cool climate of Niagara.

After careers in banking and tech, Grant Westcott and Carolyn Hurst decided to retire by starting a vineyard and winery in Carolyn's native Niagara. Initially thinking they would grow grapes and sell them to other wineries, they started with a vision of the type of wine they would love to help to create. After consulting with local experts and winemaking trailblazers and being inspired by the cool climate Chardonnays and Pinots coming out of Moira Vineyard, they searched for the perfect plot of land, planted twenty-six acres of grapes and were on their way!  

 The region's climate is perfect for Pinot Noir and Chardonnay, with lovely warm summers in between Canada's famed cold winters. Fruit sourced from both Westcott Home Farm and Butlers' Grant. Handpicked and whole bunch pressed. No sulphur added at time of crushing and fermented in barrels. 100% wild yeast and partial malolactic fermentation.

The Chardonnay is classic Burgundian style with touches of butter, ripe, almost tropical fruit and honeycomb.
