Canadian wine delivered right to your door!
We are very pleased to be offering this wine made from fruit sourced from our home vineyard. This wine is a blend of 5 different picks of Sauvignon Blanc that were made into 5 different wines, 2 of which were additionally partially aged in barrel. The resulting wine is very fragrant with ripe gooseberry, lemon zest, guava and a generous mid-palate.
