South Africa — Stellenbosch • $14.95 • 88.5/100

The wine is pale straw, with light lemon-lime, green apple and melon notes, and a hint of grass and green herbs. The palate is bright and more intense, with brisk acidity, a creamy texture that imparts a sense of richness, well-defined but not exuberant fruit, a subtle and almost earthy depth, and lingering stony minerality on the finish. This wine isn’t trying to be New Zealand, and it isn’t trying to be the Loire — perhaps it’s just trying to be Stellenbosch, and that’s an excellent thing! A best buy. • Tasted 2017-03-18 • LCBO id#456020 • Find it at your nearest LCBOWOODMAN WINES & SPIRITS (Agent)
