Ready and waiting to be shipped off to the LCBO for our February 18, 2012 Vintages release, the first of our wines to hit the shelves. Mary and I are on pins and needles, it’s like a Heinz Ketchup commercial, anticipation!

Cases of Bachelder Niagara


Natalie MacLean rates Bachelder Niagara a 94/100

Just found out that the lovely Natalie MacLean has tasted our Bachelder Niagara 2009 for the February 18, 2012 LCBO Vintages release. Read on…

Wow! This is spectacular. Thomas Bachelder did amazing things while he was the winemaker at Le Clos Jordanne, one of my favourite Niagara wineries. Now he’s out there again, taking the lead and creating superb wines from different vineyards. This chardonnay is stunning! Lemon luminescence with a core of deep minerality and lighting brightness. Perfectly balanced between a deft hand of oak and generous fruit. Makes me love chardonnay all over again. Score: 94/100
