Slightly pale salmon in color a nice minerally nose. On the mid palate the wine displays some nice crisp minerality along with some light citrus notes. On the medium length finish the wine displays some nice vibrant acidity, crisp dryness, some creaminess and citrus. This is a nice simple bubbly for a reasonable price. I would give it an -88 which for the price is good … This is a Colio Estates wine from the Lake Erie region. In spite of this being 15g/l in residual sugar, you don’t get a lot of sweetness, and in spite of this being a Riesling blend, I don’t get any honeysuckle. From the LCBO web site, check stock.

Lily Sparkling Rosé is pale pink, with a bead of fine bubbles. Delightful floral, grapefruit, brioche and fresh berry and red fruit aromas and flavours are wrapped in an elegant, creamy texture. Subtle toasty and freshly-baked bread notes round out the finish. Superb with savoury crepes, salads or freshly picked berries.
