Mason Vineyard x Thomas Bachelder Collab Chardonnay pack

$16000

The cult wine collaboration of the decade; esteemed NIagara winemakers Kelly Mason and Thomas Bachelder team up to produce wild fermented, single vineyard Chardonnay of distinction.

Working with fruit from the highly regarded Grimsby Hillside Vineyard, the pair crafted two exceptional bottles, available here in a mixed case.

The Frontier Block uses grapes from that single block of the vineyard, favoured by Mason. 

On the nose it is briny, sea salt, mineral, fennel, oyster shell, and subtle jasmine. The midpalate is well balanced with a refreshing acidity, honeycrisp apple, and meyer lemon. There is a long finish of lime zest with bright acidity forming the backbone of the wine.

The Blended Block uses grapes from the Frontier Block as well as the Red Clay Barn Block favoured by Bachelder.

The nose is spicier than Frontier, with a baked pie crust note and a mid-palate of Crème Brulé and lemon curd.

The midpalate is round and weightier than Frontier, but the finish tightens the wine back up thanks to the acidity and has a subtle note of chamomile tea.
