Light gold in colour with a medium intense nose.

Positives: The nose has a sweet peach smell along with lemon, orange, mango, pineapple, dill, butter & light toasted oak. The taste shows similar notes to the aromas with the addition of pink grapefruit rind. Medium body with good acidity & very long length.

Negatives: None.

Interesting Point:

Taste more like a $40 Chard
Use the smaller Chard glasses if you have them.
I was able to find it on sale for $14.05 at a LCBO store.
Drink now on its own or pair it with lobster & drawn butter.

Tasted: 4 Apr 13
