|Vintage Assessments Tasting Note
|Not presented at the press and/or consultants preview in the LCBO lab. A REPEAT of the recommended best buy 2016 (***) was released on January 6, 2018 at $17.95. Bight pale straw colour. Slightly spicy, faintly floral, honeyed, fresh, ripe, apple-lemon-melon nose with some mineral notes. Slightly off-dry, medium-light bodied, quite well structured, attractive, ripe, melon-apple-lemon flavours with a faint twist of grapefruit-rhubarb on the lingering, crisp, refreshing finish. Has 11% alcohol and 23 g/L residual sugar with a screwcap closure.

A Best Buy
|TASTING NOTE: The very pale-gold appearance of this wine belies the fascinating nose of herbs, peach and pear with wisps of petrol aromas. It's medium bodied and slightly off dry with flavours of pear and peach accompanied by a delightfully lemon tang. The lemon hangs on through the finish, making the entire tasting experience crisp and refreshing. This will go very nicely with a plate of spicy pad Thai drizzled with lime juice. Score - 91 (Dave Isaacs, winecurrent.com, Jan. 12, 2018)
