Matt’s review: Icellars are producing some of Canada’s finest wines, from their boutique Niagara-On-The-Lake winery. Their 2016 Chardonnay (130 cases produced), from their Icel (estate) Vineyard, displays a light gold colour, revealing baked apple, tart pineapple, melon, croissant, white floral aromas, and minerality on the nose. Medium bodied and remarkably fresh, this cool-climate Chardonnay shows great elegance and tension, with crisp apple, lemon, biscuit and almond paste notes leading to the long mineral-driven finish. A great wine to enjoy now and over the next several years. Enjoy with pan seared scallops with lemon caper sauce. Tasted April 2018. 92+ points. Matt Steeves – http://www.quercusvino.ca
