Canadian wine delivered right to your door!
Sourced from our Corus vineyard in the Lakeshore appellation, this Sauvignon Blanc was fermented and aged in seasoned French oak barrels. Half of the barrels were left to wild or spontaneous ferment which give this wine a very complex palate and intriguing bouquet.
The nose is clean with aromas of fresh passion fruit and grapefruit peel. The palate is full-bodied with flavours of fresh fruit and citrus acidity. The excellent balance of sweet vanilla and a spicy complexity leads to a long and persistent finish.
Limited production of 12 barrels.
