This is impressive from cork pop to last drop with alluring aromas of apricot, mango and spun sugar leading the parade. It coats the palate with a dazzling array of flavour—peel marmalade and apricot preserve interlaced with grilled pineapple and wisps of candied lemon peel. The moderating acidity provides balance and a lip-smacking, sweet and tang aftertaste. Sip on its own or pour with crème brulée—the perfect size for after-dinner, for two. 

Price: $25.95 (200ml) 

You can purchase this wine at our two CdC boutiques in Toronto and Ottawa, at the winery in Niagara-on-the-Lake, and on-line
