Kaçaba Unoaked Chardonnay – Local White

I normally tell people that I don’t like Chardonnay. However, that’s like saying that I don’t like small dogs – that statement is too broad.  What I mean is that I don’t like small yappy dogs that never shut up!  Sometimes I think Chardonnay is like that small annoying dog when what I really want is a well-bred, well-trained dog  to sit with me and be quiet.  I could be happy with a dog like that – a quiet miniature dachshund that is pleasant even when company rings the doorbell.

Most Chardonnays are heavily oaked (aged in barrels) and I don’t really like that in a white wine.  I want a crisp white that is subtle, has aromas other than oak, and is fruit forward.

While the winemaker at Kaçaba is not likely to describe their Unoaked Chardonnay as “a well-behaved dachshund that sits peacefully in your lap”, I hope you get the idea.  This is a great wine from an Ontario Craft winery that will be welcome on a warm summer night.

Winemaker’s notes

A lightly tropical, fruit forward chardonnay with an easy-drinking personality of soft green apple and refreshing pear. Its crisp, flowing flavour makes it ideal for light poultry dishes and white fish.
