LCBO Note Status
The grapes for this wine were sourced from some of Flowers's top sites, including the Sea View Ridge Vineyard. Expect this to be quite an elegant, fresh wine with superb cool-climate zest. Look for grapefruit and strawberry tones with nuanced rose petal and orange citrus and a pure mineral note. It's a great food wine - try it throughout the meal. Price $ 39.95
