Vintages Wine Panel: Ontario Sauvignon Blanc is starting to turn heads as this adaptable variety continues to establish a firm foothold in the wine-growing regions. The 2008 Estate Series spent 15 months in oak and offers notes of green grass, lime rind, toast and yellow plum. Dry, medium bodied and fruity with a creamy texture and a nice interplay between the fruit and oak, supported by a bright and racy acidity. My note: Juicy and tasty with lovely ripe Asian pear and melon. Like a summer’s day. I really like this style because it’s not grassy. Medium-bodied and very versatile with food.

Sauvignon Blanc food pairings: blackened lemon-pepper-crusted chicken, applewood-smoked cheddar.

Splendid Salad Wine
