This Chardonnay vineyard is right down near Old Town in NOTL, and is from the Four Mile Creek VQA. It was planted way back in 1983 when there was hardly any vinifera in Niagara! The Willms site is an enigma: it produces subtly waxy Chardonnay with minty green, orange and yellow citrus on the nose; intense and broad, yet elegant, with a subtly-shaded minerality as palpable as from the bench. Willms possesses a texture that belies its Niagara-on-the-Lake origins. My theory is that the deep old vine roots and silty, slightly sandy soils confer a savoury minerality to the wine. It is broad, long, honeyed, elegant, and fabulously-textured!
