LCBO Note Status Recommended by Vintage Assessments!
Our tasting panel (and our Vintages customers) were so impressed by the 2016 vintage of this wine that we've been excited for the 2017 to arrive. Look for lovely notions of ripe cantaloupe, nectarine, clementine and lavender, and pair with scallops or fish in a light garlic-and-herb butter sauce. Price $ 28.95
