Cool Climate Chardonnay


In the past couple of years there’s been a lot of talk about Cool Climate Chardonnay. And Niagara hosts a festival in celebration of it. Personally I don’t see a huge diff in the “˜cool’ verses “˜hot’ climate wines as both areas seem to craft towards an internationally accepted, middle/medium style. With some exceptions of course. Such as the wine in my glass ““ which really feels “˜cold.’ Temperature wise for sure, but also in a crisp, refreshing way. Sure, there’s also subtle Chardonnay sexiness, but the main experience is of a sharp, nervy edge ““ the characteristics of Cool Climate whites. So there you have it. Henry is a really good dry white wine that tastes a bit like Chardonnay. Medium bodied and versatile.
