The wine opens up with a refreshing clarity and a light-buttery texture. While there isn’t much in the mid palate, the finish is sharp (not razor-sharp) with a citrus-meets-mango sweetness.

Where this wine earns its final stripe is the price, at $9.95 it practically sells itself.

Enjoy!

Probably the best valued white at LCBO. We drank this with a pile of Indian food and it was fantastic. I bought a whole bunch more to have at the ready. Much more flavor than similarly priced Rieslings or Chardonnays (to compare apples and oranges). Citrusy, (bitter apricots?) some nice spice and a slightly musky-sour thing (in a good way). Has some body to it and a good finish. Really good all-round white.
