Canada — Ontario • $29.95 • WD Score 91/100

This subtle Niagara sparkler honours skater Patrick Chan: you can toast him as he skates for a medal at the 2018 Olympics in South Korea. Leesy, biscuity notes presage subtle lemon and yellow apple fruit, with an herbal-minty edge that shows for a few moments after the wine is poured. It is off-dry, with a little honeyed sweetness that dries nicely as the brilliant acidity firms and shapes the palate. A fine balance of toast, subtle fruit and herbs, with a gentle blanched almond nuttiness that emerges on the lemon-tinged, stony finish. Santé Patrick! • Tasted 2018-02-03 • LCBO id#546291 • Find it at your nearest LCBOFLAT ROCK CELLARS (Agent)
