A lovely white wine blend of aromatic grapes with notes of lychee, rose petal and baking spice. For every bottle sold, the winery donates $1 to the Canadian Olympic Foundation to support the country's athletes. Pair with seafood or a gold medal performance of pairs figure skating.

Team Canada White food pairings: chicken, fish, crab cakes, mild curries.

Reviews and Ratings

Jennifer Havers - WSET Level 3 rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

This wine supports the Canadian Olympic Foundation with every purchase. This is a fragrant white blend with aromas of lychee, honey blossom, peach and pear. Medium bodied and smooth on the palate with a lovely balance of fruit and floral hints, and a hint of warm spice on the finish. Enjoy this wine with spicy chicken kebabs on the grill.
Craig Haynes - WSET3 FWS SWS IWS rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

This 2017 offering from Ontario’s Niagara on the Lake regional appellation is rich with aromatic appeal. Look for aromas evocative of white flowers and lychees and anticipate layers of mineral accented stone fruits on the palate and the finish. Enjoy.
