Now this one is fun... Fielding wants you to guess what grapes they've used in the blend and then visit their website for the answer. I suggest you play along since not only is it a great exercise, but this is also a lovely wine to taste: Aromas of lychee fruit, pear and just a touch of peach greet you followed by fairly clean acidity and notes of lemon, grapefruit and a hint of vanilla. I really want to tell you what's in the blend but I won't spoil the adventure. (northof9finewine.com, May 2011)

This family owned Niagara winery varies the blend of its White Conception line every year. The 2009 vintage combines Pinot Gris, Chardonnay, Viognier, Gewurztraminer and Sauvignon Blanc, using a mixture of stainless steel ferment and barrel aging. This crowd pleaser is an ideal sipping wine for around the pool on a hot summer day. Lemon lime flavours and an underlying minerality come through in the crisp, clean finish.
