I picked up a few bottles of this direct from the winery before LCBO sold them...I'm glad they're in stock now because I love this wine.

On the nose; a nice peachy, gooseberries, green melon and slightly gasoline thing happening.

On the palate; tropical fruit (pinkus is right on about the mango), citrusy and a slight biscuity nuance that of all things reminds me of dom perignon!

My wife ordered in indian food, I ordered in sushi...I wanted to to see if i could find a wine to drink with both..this is what I picked, and it was perfect.
