L’Orpailleur White 2012

When we were up in Quebec to do some skiing we checked out this winery. I was unfamiliar with what they were doing in the area so was curious. I picked this one up. Pale in color with minerality coming through on the nose. On the mid pallet the wine displays some nice crisp minerality along with some nice lime coming through. You can taste some of the vidal for sure. This wine is 60% Vidal and 40% Seyval a grape I first encountered at Waupous in Prince Edward County. On the medium length finish the wine displays some nice acidity in the mouth. We paired it first with pan fried lake perch and second with lobster and it went well with both. I would give it a solid 88. It’s a simple well made food friendly wine. $15.80 at the SAQ in Quebec (or at the winery).
