Closson Chase is based in Prince Edward County in eastern Ontario but the grapes here hail from Niagara's Beamsville Bench district. The sunny 2010 growing season yielded superbly ripe, luscious fruit, which hints at pineapple and peach. The toasty oak is well-integrated into the silky frame, and the wine offers up complementary nuances of honey and butter woven all the way through. Fabulous stuff from world-class grape grower and winemaker Deborah Paskus. Try it with lobster or grilled salmon. It's available through clossonchase.com.
