Inniskillin Niagara Estate Pinot Noir 2014

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

Andrea scored this wine: 88/100

Absolutely beautiful colour. Pale bright ruby. Light bouquet on the nose - cherry ??, loads of red fruit, watermelon, and some wet forest. Also a small bit of fresh green tobacco and whisper of fungi. In the mouth that light raspberry returns accompanying some bright red berry notes and a hint of cranberry. I usually like PN's with a touch more earth but this is still lovely. Light body and finish medium plus acidity. Overall quite nice for Ontario and an excellent price value. Cheers!

Mission Hill Family Estate Five Vineyards Pinot Blanc 2016

Andrea scored this wine: 90/100

Yay for Pinot Blanc from the Okanagan. ??Pale straw colour with a green hue. Pink grapefruit, golden delicious apple, freshly cut pineapple skin, with a hint of freshly cut grass and even a sprig of dill weed. Also a particularly sweet floral note too - white pepper and a touch of almond. On the tongue - citrus tart pineapple once again, pear and some honey-melon on the finish. Dry. High acidity, medium body. Very fresh. Quite lovely! Yay for the okanagan valley!

Rich and fruity. Lots of dark plum, dried fruit and a touch of hot cigar box. Bold. A touch past it's prime though but otherwise delicious.
