Prince Edward County takes Manhattan #1 – Exultet Estates

Prince Edward County

Exultet in NYCAs a part of our follow-up on the Seriously Cool Chardonnay event that was held in New York City on March 8, 2011 I will be posting feedback and comments on behalf of the Prince Edward County wineries who participated in the event.

The following has been contributed by Gerry and Mia Spinosa of Exultet Estates (in photo above):

“It was an honour for Exultet Estates to present its 2009 oaked Chardonnay as one of the most outstanding Chardonnays in Canada in the Seriously Cool Chardonnay Tasting in New York City on March 8, 2011.

The wine writers approached the wines with curiosity, eager to see what beyond ice wine Canada was capable of producing.  The response was good and when the consumers / public were given access to the wines, they were very enthusiastic and surprised.  Most had never heard of Prince Edward County despite being from Ontario or Quebec, but they appreciated the opportunity to compare and taste Chardonnays from different areas in PEC,
and between different areas in Ontario and B.C.”
