From the Muhl, Eastman & Lenko vineyards. Viticultural practices included vertical shoot positioning, shoot thinning, cluster thinning, hand-leaf removal and hand- harvest.
The Beamsville Bench Chardonnay was one of the first Chardonnays introduced by Tawse and was last released in 2004. In 2011, this barrel-fermented wine was made from carefully sourced grapes from the mature Muhl (40%), Eastman (40%) and Lenko (20%) vineyards and aged 18 months in French oak. With its complex notes of white flower, ripe pear and well-integrated oak, this lush wine is a wonderful reflection of the exceptional terroir of the Beamsville Bench.
This versatile medium-bodied wine pairs beautifully with seafood, poultry or vegetarian fare. Try it with pan-seared scallops, mussels in wine sauce, roasted chicken with lemon and herbs or a salad of pears, Roquefort and toasted walnuts.
