2015 Chardonnay Barrel Aged Special Reserve VQA
This wine pays special tribute to City of Vaughan's past mayor Mrs. Lorna Jackson. She is remembered for three decades of public service and exceptional leadership qualities. Mrs. Jackson passed away April 5, 2002 following a courageous battle with colorectal cancer. Unknown to many of her constituents Mrs. Jackson was an avid painter. Magnotta Winery has purchased one of her paintings and has used it for the label for this wine. Magnotta Winery has made this wine into a "Special Tribute" edition by donating a portion of the proceeds from the sale of the wine to the Colorectal Cancer Association of Canada (http://www.colorectal-cancer.ca/en/)
