What a gorgeous and exotically aromatic white wine! Redolent of apricot, peach and Asian pear with a smoky weave throughout. Medium-bodied with a clentine, floral finish. Perfect for medium curries and spices. Try it.

Marsanne Viognier food pairings: barbecued chicken, barbecued pork ribs.

Reviews and Ratings

Malcolm Lamont - WSET Adv, CSW rated this wine as 91/100 with the following review:

Light gold in colour, this Ontario offering shows tropical fruit, white citrus and an inviting smoky-stone aromas. Crisp flavours on the palate the get nicely contrasted by an oily texture. This one opens up and becomes more and more inviting as you go.

A great example of Ontario shining on!
Grilled pineapple, peach, applesauce, smoke and crushed rock aromas. Big and robust with oodles of smoke and rocks on the palate. This is not a timid wine, despite the doily character of the label. Pineapple and apple again on the finish. This will be an amazing partner for a dinner. Source: Vintages Wine Panel, July 2013

Unquenchable by Natalie MacLean

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a fiesty North American answer to Hugh Johnson and Jancis Robinson. She can write beautifully about wine.

The Financial Times of London

There are very few people in the wine world who "get it" and Natalie is one of those who brings more fun to a buttoned-up and stodgy game.
