TASTING NOTE: Time on skins: 55 days. A more extreme example of Ontario orange, but one that evolves marvelously with a little air. It has a pale pink-rosé colour with the merest hint of orange. Nearly two months on the skins has given it a serious tannic backbone, dusty, drying, grippy. But I love the range of flavours, the dried roses, the rosehip and hibiscus flower, the pleasantly bitter finish, and certainly the cleanliness and precision on offer. Very good length. An excellent first commercial effort from Vineland. Score - 91 (John Szabo, MS, winealign.com, June 30, 2017) Price $ 30.00
