Stylistically, this Chardonnay falls somewhere between the white wines of the Côte de Beaune and the wines of Chablis. There is a distinct oak influence while the body and structure are lean, with crisp acidity. A crisp and clean acidity ensures that this wine pairs beautifully with food now and will mature gracefully for years to come.
— AD ASTRA —
William MacIntyre Sr. passed away one month after we began this journey in winemaking, and never got to see this beautiful property.
A career military man, he devoted himself to family and the Royal Canadian Airforce, whose motto is Per Ardua Ad Astra, meaning Through Adversity to the Stars.
It seemed fitting that the name of our premiere Chardonnay reflect our aspirations, and honour those in all of our families who inspire us to fly higher.
