Vintage Assessments Tasting Note Producer PELEE ISLAND WINERY
OK and now for something completely different. I was caught off-guard by this gently off-dry, fizzy, apple wine made from the local Braeburn variety. It is the kind of wine that was made in the past by our ancestors and served with pride at festive Fall get-togethers. This modern take was surprisingly delicious. It has a pale straw and an attractive, fresh apple purée nose. Just off dry, well balanced and medium-light bodied, the crisp, fresh, ripe apple flavours are lifted by some gentle effervescence leaving a refreshing finish. Less than 500 cases remain, it has 10% alcohol and 18 g/L residual sugar. TONY ASPLER / 89-points / BEST BUY - Delicate apple and pear nose; light-bodied with a light petillance; it has bright, clean, ripe apple flavours with lemony acidity; fresh and lively on the palate with a fine mouthfeel. Easy drinking and refreshing. Perfect for the Christmas holidays! Despite selling over 50% of the total remaining stock during the Thanskgiving period, the LCBO has decided to clear out the remaining bottles at a $11.05 - an incredible and, quite frankly, incomprehensible price!
