Limited edition VQA wine, The Tragically Hip 2016 “Ahead by a Century” Chardonnay, will be released in select LCBO Vintages locations on Saturday, April 14th.

The premium VQA Chardonnay commemorates the 20th Anniversary of The Tragically Hip’s highly acclaimed 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.

2016 “Ahead by a Century” Chardonnay has a delightful balance between fruit and oak. The nose is ripe with aromas of Macintosh apple, pear and lemon and orange zest with oaky notes of vanilla and allspice. The palate is medium bodied with a silky, buttery texture, balanced by crisp lemon acidity. Flavours include butterscotch, melon, peach and apples. The finish is awash in vanilla and clove notes with lingering minerality.

The wine is a collaboration with multi-award winning Stoney Ridge Estate Winery in Vineland who also worked with the band on the critically acclaimed creation of the Fully Completely Grand Reserve Red, which became one of the fastest selling premium VQA wines ever launched.

2016 “Ahead by a Century” Chardonnay will be available in select LCBO Vintages locations starting Saturday, April 14th, 2018. Quantities are limited.
