Henry of Pelham Chardonnay 2017 £16.50
HENRY OF PELHAM CHARDONNAY
One thing unites every wine produced by Henry of Pelham: the land. The family has lived on it for generations and the vines have been putting down deep roots for decades. Every bottle captures this unique connection to this corner of Niagara. Not just good wine—beautiful wine.
Henry of Pelham’s 300-acre vineyard is located in the Short Hills Bench sub-appellation of the Niagara Peninsula.
The Short Hills Bench is the most easterly of the sub-appellations located within the Niagara Escarpment. It encompasses the land rising up from the plain of the peninsula south of Regional Road 81 to the Escarpment Brow and situated between Twelve Mile Creek and Fifteen Mile Creek.
The undulating hills and valleys of the Short Hills, which rest on an ancient buried valley that once cut through the Niagara of Escarpment and connected the basins Lake Ontario and Lake Erie, provide long gentle slopes with excellent drainage and sun exposure. The warm sunny days and cool nights characteristic of this area are perfect for developing the intense grape flavours derived from its complex soils. All the grapes for Henry of Pelham Estate and Speck Family Reserve wines are grown in the Short Hills Bench sub-appellation.
• Fermented in stainless steel with aging sur lie (on the yeast lees sediment) to bring complexity and depth of flavour
This wine is bright and aromatic with flavours ranging from vibrant apple to citrusy grapefruit. True cool-climate Chardonnay character.

We first discovered Canadian wine on a trip to Toronto in 2014 (we didn't know they produced wine till then ) , we were glad we brought back our full allowance as it was near impossible to find in the UK . One of the wines was Henry of Pulham Chardonnay . I'm no wine expert but this is extremely easy drinking and it is loaded with flavours it is definitely worth the extra expense !
So glad we found a distributor in the UK !
