This wine is pale in color with grassy notes coming through on the nose. On the mid pallet this wine is dominated by green flavors. Some grassyness to go with the nose, some green tartness, and some acidity. This is a very dry wine. The wine is medium in length on the finish with the acidity living on nicely and building in the mouth. For me the sharpness is right on the edge. Any more and it would be unpleasant. I would give this wine an 88 or so. Not a bad Sauv Blanc and a good showing for a Niagara Sauv Blanc. For me, given the price, this is not a bad deal, but not a steal either.

Gold Medal winner at the All Canadian Wine Championships 2010. Shows aromas of apple, pear, sweetgrass, mineral and hay. Dry, crisp and very lively. Good tart-apple replays play across the palate. Mouth-watering, long-finishing wine. A great match for grilled rainbow trout with lemon, roasted mini potatoes and butter. (VINTAGES panel, Sept. 2011)
