Rosé

Mouton Cadet Rosé 2018

Bordeaux, France
160 days ago

Kristin scored this wine: 94/100

Of course I want what I can't have in the LCBO. (Yet.) A beautiful, elegant, and sophisticated yet playful dry rosé bursting with loads of field berries and minerality sucked me right in to its vortex. Refreshing, aromatic, clean and lip-smackingly delicious! Pair with cheese and charcuterie boards, sweltering summer patio sessions with friends and family - poultry, pork, salmon are also ideal proteins. Don't be fooled, this wine can fly solo if it really wants to!

Blanc

Mouton Cadet Blanc 2018

Bordeaux, France
160 days ago

Kristin scored this wine: 91/100

Lemony-snicket, rich, round mouthfeel, light to medium-bodied, slightly floral, steely, minerally and crisp all at the same time! Versatile, and perfect for summer! Fish, poultry, rich buttery seafoods would scream for this - but so would a punchy vinaigrette-based salad. Or creamy, tangy goat cheese. Either way, I'm IN!

Orange

Loveblock Orange Sauvignon Blanc 2018

Marlborough, New Zealand
181 days ago

Kristin scored this wine: 90/100

"Won't you take me to, Funky-town!" Sweet spicy orange, clementine, apricot preserves- refreshing herbal and minerally finish. Medium plus body, ready for action with some fish, pork or poultry tacos!

Loveblock Pinot Gris 2018

Marlborough, New Zealand
181 days ago

Kristin scored this wine: 91/100

"Love me tender, love me sweet!" Stone fruit, juicy melon, aromatic orange blossom, minerals - full bodied, mouth-coating yet refreshing acidity to follow and cleanse the palate, finishing dry. Pair with pork, poultries (perhaps with peach chutney!) or on it's own in the afternoon sunshine.

Icellars Estate Winery Merlot 2017

Niagara-On-The-Lake, Ontario V.Q.A., Canada
228 days ago

Kristin scored this wine: 91/100

Plush, velvety plum, cigar box, vanilla, coffee, cocoa beans, cinnamon, flint minerality - full bodied, soft tannins, warming alcohol. Like a hug for your mouth and soul!

Current Fav Wine

I am polyamorous when it comes to wine. BUT I DO love my "cheap and cheerful" Segura Vidas Cava at the moment :)
