2011 Redstone Chardonnay – Wine Review with Andre Proulx

By | Reviews | No Comments

2011 Redstone Chardonnay – Vintages 398966 – $18.95 – **** – I don’t often like to dwell on the price of the wines I talk about … the main thing I am looking for with all my reviews is value.  That being said I think we can officially put to bed the statement that there are no good Ontario Chardonnay’s under the twenty dollar mark.  This is an excellent showing from Redstone.  There is a great balance of pear, peach and citrus that is perfectly intertwined with nice vanilla and subtle gingerbread spice on the finish.  This will make a great match to creamy pasta dishes and roasted chicken.

Pricey, yes, but owner Moray Tawse aims high. And he succeeds admirably here. Yes, the same Tawse behind the nearby winery of the same name. This is his new Niagara venture on property purchased in 2009. Rene Van Ede, who worked at Tawse for eight years under talented winemaker Paul Pender, has stepped out of the shadows to take over duties at this organic and biodynamic estate. Clearly he was given great vines to work with. The 2010 merlot delivers smooth, luscious texture carrying concentrated, sweet cassis, maraschino and chocolate flavours enhanced by dark-roast coffee and cedar. Firm tannins lend backbone to this well-structured, cellar-worthy effort. A beauty for big-meat dishes (91)
