Lake & River Moonlight White

Colio Estate Wines Lake & River Moonlight White 2009

Lake Erie North Shore And Pelee Island, Canada

Andre reviewed this wine:

This wine just screams summer to me. I think pairing a sunset with it would be best. This is more subtle and toned down with a more honeydew melon flavour being in front with this one. It also has a very crisp finish. But being serious pairing with this would be better with Chicken Souvlaki.

Andre reviewed this wine:

A steal for the price. The Calamus Reserve Red has a bit of a bite to it with a peppery feel on the tongue, that being said very nice plum and currant as well.

Andre reviewed this wine:

This is a very fruity Cab Merlot that is extremely smooth. Flavours of juicy red fruit dominate this wine with flavours of Plum, Currant and even leaning to raspberry.

Calamus Estate Winery Unoaked Chardonnay 2008

V.Q.A., Niagara Escarpment, Ontario, Canada

Andre reviewed this wine:

This is a wonderful bright Chardonnay that is extremely underpriced. With bright citrus and apple flavours with a very crisp and clean finish. This is an Unoaked Chardonnay that needs nothing paired with it to be completely enjoyed.

Generation Seven White

Ch√Ęteau des Charmes Generation Seven White 2009

Niagara-On-The-Lake, Canada

Andre scored this wine: 100/100

This is a crisp bright white blend that needs nothing paired with it to be fully enjoyed. But if you had to pair anything with it how about tossing some trout, shrimp or other mild fish on the bbq?
