Reviews and Ratings

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

A unique blend of Riesling and Chardonnay, two grapes that Ontario's renowned cool climate excels in. The Foreign Affair Winery, as the pioneer in Canadian appassimento winemaking, have added even more complexity to this wine by re-passing the juice over partially-dried Chardonnay skins, just as is done with 'baby Amarone' (Ripasso) wines in Verona Italy after making the iconic Amarone wines. The nose shows wildflower honey, crisp yellow apple, and white pepper. Delicious orchard fruit on the palate; this dry and lively textured wine would be ideal with grilled seafood, tangy BBQ'd chicken, fish tacos, or just chilled on a patio. Terrific value, this will be a very popular white wine for patio season 2016. 89 points. Tasted April 2016. Matt Steeves - www.quercusvino.ca
Monique Sosa - Accredited Sommelier rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

A trailblazing wine with scrumptious flavours, crisp acidity and even a little body. This wine is a cool blend of Riesling and Chardonnay grapes that have been partially dried and vilified in the "ripasso" style. The nose shows inviting fresh peach, apricot, ripe yellow apple and citrus notes. The palate is off-dry, rich and shows complex concentrated stone fruit and citrus notes. Enjoy with a saucy Pad Thai or chicken satay. Tasted May 2016. @sommsosa @bespoketastings
This Niagara winery makes extensive use of the Ripasso style whereby the grapes from the 66% Riesling in the blend are re-passed over the dried skins of the 34% Chardonnay to add more heft and weight to the wine. - Community Wine Review
