Canada — Ontario • $29.95 • 90/100

Made from fruit grown in winemaker Shiraz Mottiar’s vineyard on the Beamsville Bench, the wine was fermented in French oak (16% new), and then aged for 10 months. A smoky-reductive note introduces aromas of fresh lemon juice and zest, apples, melon, white peach and vanilla. Crisp acidity contrasts with the delicious, lightly creamy fruit and spice on the palate. The finish focuses into a lingering lemony minerality. Nicely balanced and direct. • LCBO Release 03/24/2017 • LCBO id#0 • Find it at your nearest LCBO
