This light and crisp Chardonnay is full bodied with a smooth and mellow finish. Distinct floral aromas add a delicate component. There’s good substance and texture here, though the overall experience is well balanced and elegant. This beautiful vintage would pair exquisitely with a higher fat seafood – think lobster – or would pair equally well with your closest friends! 

It’s no wonder this wine took home bronze at the 2012 Wine Access Canadian Wine Awards, Ottawa Wine Challenge and the Intervin International Wine Awards.

If you’re heading to the winery to pick up this beautiful bottle (and we highly recommend it!), come with an empty stomach. The Rosehall Run tasting room doubles as an artisan food market with everything from beautiful County grown and made preserves to spicy, salty Seed to Sausage charcuterie.
