About This Wine:
Our Sauvignon Blanc originates from vineyards situated along gently sloping hillsides of the Niagara Escarpment overlooking Lake Ontario. In this area, the combination of limestone-clay soils, elevation and moderating on-shore breezes allow us to produce a wine that exhibits the crisp, herbal character typical of this cool-climate variety.

Tasting Notes:
The nose offers aromas of green melon, cut grass and Granny Smith apple, with hints of musk in behind. The palate is quite rich and weighty, with flavours of ripe apple up front. Fleshy and supple in the middle, the wine shows intense ruby grapefuit and lemon grass flavours that persist long onto the finish. Open knit yet juicy in style, this vintage is enticing for its combination of ripeness and freshness.
