|TASTING NOTE: In the Family Tree, Chardonnay, Viognier, Gewürztraminer and Chardonnay Musqué grapes sourced from vineyards across the Niagara Peninsula come together to make one big happy family. Perfumed, floral notes introduce ripe flavours of apple, apricot, pear, mineral and lime in a well-rounded package with crisp, food- friendly acidity. A great wine to bring to a family potluck.
