Exultet Estates The Blessed Chardonnay 2016, Ontario
BEPPI CROSARIOL - WINE & SPIRITS COLUMNIST
PUBLISHED OCTOBER 11, 2018

Another marvellous chardonnay from Prince Edward County’s Exultet, this one from the warm, ripe 2016 season. Full-bodied and impressively balanced, it’s generously flavoured, with grilled pineapple, vanilla, toasted hazelnut and peach notes, finishing with tight-bright acidity. Judiciously oaked, this should improve with up to four more years in the cellar. Available direct
