’14 LA Frenz Reserve Chardonnay 

Lately I’ve been having some difficulty reconciling the price of Canadian wine versus, say, Spain or Chile. Or Argentina. Or even villages-class France. We make some great stuff, no doubt, but it is often overpriced because of antiquated cross-border transport rules. However there are some exceptions where price is irrelevant and quality shines through. This is one of them.

With a nose of cedar and vanilla, this small vineyard Chardonnay presents a very appealing aroma. The palate of spice and melon is sublime, with the finish rich and long – as if it were a dessert.

So in saying that this is a stellar Chardonnay it would come as no surprise if it were priced at $40. However at $25 from the winery this is exceptional value for a rich Chardonnay.

Try if you like: something between the classic austerity of a Burgundy and the buttery Cali chard’s.
