You must like Oaky Chards to like this one, and I do
Description: Deep gold in colour with a medium to medium+ intense nose. The wine features medium to medium+ toasted oak, lemon tarts, pineapple, green and yellow apples, dill, ginger, butterscotch, vanilla and Allspice. Medium+ body with good acidity and a very long length.
Negatives: A bit tart on the finish
Interesting Note: Students from the Niagara College Winery made this wine. If you’re in St. Catharines, Ontario, please visit the college winery as these students produce some great wines.
Drink now or in the next 3 years on its own or pair it with Renegade Pork with Mango Ginger Rub.
