I was wandering in an LCBO store and they were sampling this wine so I said why not. I was thoroughly surprised by it, and bought a bottle. They also were sampling the shiraz but I didn’t care for it. This wine is quite pale in color and has a lovely lemony, grassy bouquet. On the mid pallet the wine is quite varietal in flavor for a sauv blac with lots of lemon and grass to go with the bouquet. The wine is quite zesty with a medium finish. All in all this is a reasonably well made tasty sauv blanc. Nice and dry. I would give it an 88-89 or so. I paired it with pan fried steak and kidney and it went well, holding it’s own. Give it a try you might be surprised!
