Note: I publish batches of reviews that I call Good Values Wine Picks. These are from the regular section of the liquor store rather than the Vintages section, and tend to be lower priced and the most widely available of all wines. The last four reviews I did were: March 5, February 26, September 11 and July 26.
Calliope Figure Eight White 2011 Wine Review
A lovely, fresh, floral white that has enticing aromas of ripe melon and sun-kissed lemon blossom. Terrific aperitif or food companion. 4.4/5 Food pairings: roasted halibut, mild Indian curries, roast chicken stuffed with lemon & herbs.

A complex yet subtle array of aromas with cantaloupe melon, tropical mango and guava, jasmine, passion fruit, pear and zingy citrus. The palate starts full and soft with apricot, tropical fruits and peach before the crisp mineral acidity kicks in along with flavours of pear, apple, passion fruit and some delicate floral notes on the long finish.
