I had not heard of this winery before and with such a high score I thought let’s give it a try. It’s an unknown (to me) rater but heh … So with that in mind I dove in. This wine straight off is quite thin. The finish is very light. Oak is not evident at all. For me the tastes did not work together. I got some very tart flavors (I’m not fond of tart). The rater said pineapple. If it’s pineapple I would say more the green unripe pineapple. I got more grapefruit. Either way, this is not a good wine and I would not recommend it. If I had more, I would be returning it …

From the LCBO web site:
SOUTHBROOK TRIOMPHE SAUVIGNON BLANC 2007 VQA Niagara Peninsula TASTING NOTE: Screw cap closure. Very clean pungent fresh and highly fruity with wonderfully aromatic passion fruit and green tropical fruit fresh apple pineapple highly inviting. Dry medium body with ripe fruit up front on the palate that yields quickly to tart green apple acidity that maintains great freshness and juiciness finishing on lemony notes. Gives great Sancerre or NZ a run for the money. Drink now. Score – 89. (John Szabo M.S. Undated) 117556 $18.95 Featured 5/2/2009
