Tawse Robyn’s Block Chardonnay 2013 (Niagara)
SCORE: 92 PRICE: $45.95 Pricy, yes, but this easily ranks in the league of many similarly priced white Burgundies. Medium-bodied, with a buttery centre set against a firm acid spine. Excellent depth of flavour showing pineapple, honeyed tropical fruit, candied lemon, leesy tang and toasted bread. Perfect cool-climate tension in a fully ripe chardonnay.
