Tasting Notes:
A delightful balance between fruit and oak with a rich, creamy palate showcasing the vibrant character of the 2021 vintage. Aromas of vanilla, lemon meringue, fresh peach, and citrus dominate the nose with hints of pineapple and apricot in the background. The palate is medium to full-bodied with a silky, buttery texture, balanced by soft citrus acidity. Flavours include charred lemon, orange marmalade, and creamy vanilla. The finish is a rich creamy oak medley with balancing citrus acidity.

Ahead by a Century Chardonnay was originally created to commemorate the 20th anniversary of The Tragically Hip’s 5th album - Trouble at the Henhouse which debuted at #1 on the Canadian Albums Chart 20 years ago, stayed #1 for 4 straight weeks and has been certified 6 times platinum.
