With a nod to Canada Day my wine pick hails from a winery of great distinction, known not only for their superb, award winning wines but also for their innovation and commitment to our land, our soils, our environment. Southbrook Vineyards located in Niagara-on-the-Lake is Canada’s first winery to have its vineyard certified as a biodynamic winery, taking organic practices one step further. Southbrook’s philosophy is practiced throughout, from the biodynamic, organic vineyard into the winery. Credos to Southbrook!
Still feeling the love for Chardonnay My Wine pick is Southbrook Vineyards Triomphe Chardonnay 2012
Perfect for our barbecues, this Chardonnay delivers big and pure! With tropical aromas that include, one of my faves, pineapple, with notes of apple and pear, a touch of vanilla and oak spice. Rich with good acidity and lively on the palate. a delicious Chardonnay, medium bodied and perfect partner for whatever I put on the grill, particularly my sister’s recipe for grilled chicken breast stuffed with goat cheese soaked in fresh herbs from my garden!
