Canadian wine delivered right to your door!
Clear and bright with a pretty nose of melon, pear and apricot with floral notes of orange blossom and lilac. This smooth medium-bodied wine has a slightly rich mouth-feel and juicy flavours of apricot, peach, melon and tropical fruit. Juicy tangerine, tropical fruit, delicate spice, marzipan and floral notes linger on the refreshing finish. Drink while young and fresh.
Serve lightly chilled at 12 to 14°C with pan-fried scallops; baked tilapia; Dungeness crab; lightly spiced pork tenderloin; crown roast of pork; poached salmon; roast chicken; turkey breast with garlic aioli on crusty rolls; mild curry dishes. The perfect sipping wine for casual conversation.
