Same terrific wine available in bottles or cans!

Picked at optimum ripeness, this unoaked Chardonnay has delicate aromas of pear, green and yellow apples, white peach, clover blossoms and a drizzle of honey. Well balanced, clean and rather elegant. Flavours of fresh apples and pears, kiwifruit, sweet oranges, mango and hints of apple-spice herbal tea and lime rind, finished with a crisp citrus. It’s a bit lower in acidity than most unoaked chardonnay, because it is fully ripened, so it’s smoother but it’s not buttery like oaked chards. Loved by chardonnay fans but it’s also converted a huge number of people who belong to the “ABC Club – anything but chardonnay” so many have added the disclaimer except we love Castoro de Oro’s chardonnay! Our Chardonnay is an easy to pair with food or highly smashable from a can at the beach or when golfing. This is our newest release in can format and so far we’ve kept it only in BC.

Castoro de Oro

The Castoro de Oro Estate Vineyard, was planted with viniferous grape vines in 1980, though for over 40 years previous to that it was a table grape vineyard. There are still a few of the extremely old table grape vines on our property, one of which is at the entrance to our wine shop. Our vineyard has a unique soil combination from alluvial deposit, southeast aspect with excellent exposure to sunshine resulting in full flavour and aroma development. The vineyard slope with the lake at the foot, providing excellent frost drainage, keeps the vines safe from late spring or early fall frost problems, allowing the grapes to ripen fully. The vines are planted to the foot of a mountain, which provides evening shade, resulting in a rapid cool-off during summer, which prevents the grape acids from dropping and results in a fine balance between ripe, sweet fruit and firm, clean acidity. All of which is an ideal foundation for growing superior grapes. White and red grapes grow equally well in this class one grape growing terroir and enables the production of terrific wines of many types in a wide range of styles.
