Bachelder

Ontario, ontario Canada

Thomas Bachelder, together with his wife Mary Delaney, started producing high quality cool-climate Chardonnay in three regions - France, the US and Canada - starting from the 2009 vintage. We are excited to offer Thomas' Chardonnay from Niagara.

Years of making Chardonnay - including in Meursault and Corton-Charlemagne - have taught Thomas to be as low intervention as possible in his winemaking. Pressing of the grapes is therefore very gentle and fermentation is carried out only with wild yeasts. Malolactic fermentation takes place in specially selected oak barrels, followed by an extended ageing period which makes the wines more integrated, elegant, subtle and, surprisingly, less oaky.

New to our list this year is the 'Wismer-Parke' 20 Mile Bench Pinot Noir. This single vineyard Pinot Noir is beautifully poised and expressive, with flavours of plush, red berry fruit, silky tannins and bright acidity.
