What’s special about this bottle. Pineapple notes on the nose begin this classic wine. Throughout the palate, there are many layers, inviting you to come back for more. It is a full and lush style of Chardonnay crafted by legendary Vintner Jim Warren, with rich stone fruit notes, supported by a seam of minerality and structured with a tempered amount of French and American oak aging.

A Jim Warren Classic Chardonnay 2018. A limited release of only 80 cases. Decades ago, legendary vintner, Jim Warren, started out to craft his renowned Classic Chardonnay. The rare and exceptional fruit for this vintage was sourced from one of Niagara’s most coveted sites on the Beamsville Bench: The Foxcroft Vineyard. This meticulously maintained, select vineyard is the foundation for a full and lush style of Chardonnay with rich stone fruit notes, supported by a seam of minerality and structured with a tempered amount of oak aging. Enjoy as Jim Warren reimagines his Jim Warren Classic Chardonnay for those occasions when you want the very finest wine.

Food Pairings. Strawberry-jam infused cream-cheese over smoked salmon, topped with caviar; pan-seared scallops with Chardonnay in garlic cream sauce; fatty-meaty fish baked over cedar plank.

Alc. 14% ; Sugar 3 g/l

What are others saying?

“These are indeed the latest Jim Warren Classic Chardonnays available for sale. His chardonnays embrace both an opening aromatic nose and a terrific mid-palate taste of what he is known for: rich stone fruit, some tropicality and orchard fruit, a judicious use of oak, ending with a citric minerality for a strong food wine. Bearing in mind what you get from California and Europe that costs much more, this is a great price for value. 3g/L residual sugar. 14% ABV.”

Quality/Price rating for the Foxcroft Bench is 94 points by Dean Tudor of Gothic Epicures.
