2001 Benjamin Bridge Brut
Annapolis Valley, NS
This wine is tense, citrusy, focused and offers a superb balance between autolytic richness and saline-like mineral-edged verve. Oysters, please!

2012 Bachelder Wiser Vineyard Chardonnay Twenty Mile Bench DVA
The 2012 Wismer Vineyard combines beautiful bruised apple and peach aromas with creme brulee and toasted almond. A surprisingly acid and mineral driven palete culminates in a remarkably long finish. I paired this wine with caramelized cod, a new dish on Chef Lee’s tasting menu.

Perpetua Okanagan Valley, BC
The perfect “next world” Chardonnay ... butter, bite and balance. Old world restraint with new world flair and a sweet pineapple kiss to say good-bye. Have a glass or pour it directly onto my pan seared, Bacon Crusted Halibut with Brown Butter
