Canadian wine delivered right to your door!
Hand picked and hand sorted from reduced crop. Barrel fermented and aged for 3 months in new American oak barrels.
Appearance: Light yellow amber in colour.
Nose: Intense aroma of tangerine, gooseberry, and green apple - tangy yet sweet fruit. Smells very much like a crisp-but-sweet Riesling.
Palate: Consists of apricot, vanilla, and hints of sweet oak. Sweeter and less “green” than many Sauvignon Blancs, due to barrel aging.
Food pairings: Try this wine with seafood - oysters, lobster, shrimp, and bass fish are great pairings. Goes well with many softer cheeses, such as young Brie, cream cheese, goat cheese, Feta, Gouda, and Swiss. Fresh herbs are the key to pairing this wine. Best enjoyed on the patio on a hot day - today, or anytime before 2023.

This Sauvignon Blanc was aged for 3 months in new American oak, which gives it some mellowness and depth. Subtly off dry, it’s a Sauvignon Blanc more reminiscent of the French white Bordeaux style than that of New Zealand. Very pleasant with a nice finish.
