Pale straw in color with a vibrant citrus nose. On the mid palate the wine displays some vibrant citrus notes and zest. On the medium length finish the wine displays some vibrant acidity, some grapefruit and lemony notes. The acidity coats the palate quite strongly and there are some slightly metallic notes in the aftertaste. This is definitely more of an edgy sauv blanc. The back of the bottle says “Citrus and nettle aromas intertwined with delicate crisp flavors of gooseberry, lemon peel and grapefruit.” There’s a definite strong note of tartness and dryness to the wine. I would give it an -88, be sure and pair it with something lively. We paired it with pan fried pickerel and it was on the verge of overwhelming it. From the LCBO web site, check stock:
