2016 Lt. Governor's Award for Excellence in Ontario Wine
GOLD MEDAL WINNER at the 2015 National Wine Awards of Canada (The Nationals)
Tiny Exultet of Prince Edward County has been on my radar since the late 2000s, and it has won copious major competition awards. The consistency is remarkable; with Gerry Spinosa reading his hand-hewn 10-acre site near Milford superbly, then overlaying his winemaking in a way that impresses so many. This is fairly 'oaky' - with fetching "werthers butterscotch" atop peachy fruit but his site delivers such mineral-driven elegance as a counterpoint that it's hard to resist. This shows classic County acidity and almost brunt minerality. The length is excellent indeed. Tasted June 2015. 91 pts

This “Blessed” Chardonnay, bottled earlier this year, is beautiful, citrusy and lively. Best enjoyed in a year or so, or now with decanting and letting it breathe for an hour. Ageable for 5+ years. A treasure for those who love Exultet’s Chardonnays and know how much is put into them.
