TASTING NOTE: In addition to owning and operating Rosewood, the Roman family are third-generation beekeepers and keep hundreds of beehives scattered across the Niagara Escarpment and the Greenbelt. This has a light, fresh feel and is buzzing with flavours of lemon, apple and orange pith, followed by subtle notes of vanilla and butterscotch from the partial oak ageing. The 100% malolactic fermentation lends a creamy aspect to the vibrant finish. Pair with crostini topped with apple, brie and honeycomb. (Vintages panel, Oct. 2017) Price $ 16.95
