Reviews and Ratings

Matt Steeves - Certified Sommelier rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

A blend of 65% Riesling and 35% Viognier, with expressive tropical and exotic fruit on the nose. Great texture and weight that's kept light and lively by the layers of zesty exotic fruit with lychee and pear on the spicy finish. Just off dry but not noticeably so, White Palette would be a great complement to moderately spicy Asian cuisine, roasted poultry, mild cheeses, and great as an aperitif in the summer sun. Tasted March 2017. Great value! 89 points. Matt Steeves - www.quercusvino.ca
Lise Charest Gagne rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

This white blend is such great value! Its fresh smelling with some light petrol and crunchy pear. I also get a hint of salinity or minerals. It has a nice smooth mouth feel at the first sip then bright citrus, Bartlett green pear, lychee and a tart spicy finish. It has several layers yet is still clean tasting. What a great patio wine. Bring some and impress your friends next time. Tasted in August 2017.
Rachelle O'Connor rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

A blend of Riesling (65%) and Viognier (35%) - Light, dry and crisp with a touch of creaminess. The palate is lovely - pear, lychee, lemon, lime and spice. Lovely on its own or with mild cheese.
Melanie Lloyd - Certified Sommelier rated this wine as 88/100 with the following review:

Colour wise, this wine is light yellow and bright. Aroma wise, the first thing I noticed was a nutty quality: Almonds and hazelnuts. Then came bruised apple, honey, herbal and mineral notes.

On the palate, there’s a touch of sweetness. There’s citrus flavours and tartness. There is also apple, and a touch of almond.

Tasted October 2017
Jon Steeves - Sommelier rated this wine as 87/100 with the following review:

Deep golden and bright. Declared 12.5% ABV. Medium bodied with balanced acidity and fruit. Approachable white blend with aromatics of juicy ripe pear, orange blossom and a hint of spice. Mouthwatering and medium bodied. Paired well with a #vegan sweet potato and curried lentil stew. Tasted March 2017. 87 points.
From 13th Street, White Palette (2014) is a light and floral white wine blend of 65% Riesling and 35% Viognier from the Niagara wine region. The wine is clean crisp and refreshing with pear, apple and spice notes. - Community Wine Reviews
