rated this wine as 89/100
with the following review:
I've tested various Ontario meads in the last two years and this one is the only one that could pass as a grape-based wine. The aromas and flavours are lighter than most meads, even other dry meads I've tasted. The aromas are similar to a Riesling: Apple, apricot, orange blossom, minerality, and a hint of almonds. The flavours are consistent with a white grape-based wine: apple and citrus with medium acidity. I would pair this with mildly seasoned fish, chicken or pork. It pairs well with a cheese plate as well.

Not cloyingly sweet: beautiful balance. This is sunshine in a bottle on a spring day. Drink: 2013-2015. 296178 13% S 500 mL $14.95 Score: 89/100. November 9, 2013 Divine Dessert Wine Full Review
