Location: LCBO Vintages & Winery
Region: Niagara Peninsula, Ontario
Format: 750 ml

Alcohol: 13.0% Alcohol/Vol.
Beautifully made with balance of the fruit, acidity & oak that sees this complex wine as rich & full body. Score: 95/100.
Tasting Note: Bright yellow in colour with good acidity, medium intense nose, light tannin & a long length on the finish. This wine features: Lemon, lanolin, pineapple, Jonagold apples, pear, honeydew melon, caramel, ginger, dill, oak spice, limestone & honeysuckle on the nose.
Interesting Point: “We repeatedly tasted barrel by barrel to select only those representatives of the Le Clos terroir. After 19 months of aging (to push the wines away from only having ‘varietal’ characteristics, and more towards terroir), we racked the wines out of barrel and left them to settle in tank for about a month to achieve better homogenization and more elegance in the bouquet. We
filtered the wines just prior to bottling, where they were then aged in bottle
for several months prior to release to further develop both the aromatic
bouquet and the mouthfeel.” (Winery)
Pairings: Drink this now or in the next 3-5 years on its own or pair it with steamed snow crab legs with drawn butter.
My Opinion: Highly Recommended
