A delightful, vibrant white wine blend of Riesling and Chardonnay Musque grapes form Prince Edward County. Aromas of daisies, lychee, apple blossom and white peach. So pretty and so balanced with racy acidity for shellfish and vegetarian dishes.

Reviews and Ratings

Colin McKone - Sommelier rated this wine as 91/100 with the following review:

Very pale straw in colour with aromas of green apple, fresh green grass, lychee and peach. It is light bodied with well balanced acidity. It has flavours of peach, green apple and tropical fruit. This will pair well with seafood dishes. Tasted on September 16, 2018.
Melanie Lloyd - Certified Sommelier rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

Aromas of lychee, honeydew, peach, white pepper, and hints of almond. On the palate, there is pineapple, lychee and canteloupe. It has some residual sugar that is well balanced by the acidity.

Wine-Food Pairing: Fried salty appetizers.

Tasted September 2018
Andrea Shapiro rated this wine as 88/100 with the following review:

Fruity aromas of peach, white melon and stone driven herbal touches. Flavours are fruit froward with apricots, yellow plums and cantaloupe melon. The riesling comes trough with vibrant acidity, lime juice citrus and stone fruit at the back. Off dry, well integrated blend. Pair with mild curries and spicy jalapeno cheeses. 88 points - tasted September 2018
Andrew Bernardo rated this wine as 88/100 with the following review:

This wine is green. Green as in green pepper, green papaya, green grass, and green fig. Some citrus and a few flowers to go into the mix. Super interesting and quirky. 88 Points.
Jennifer Havers - WSET Level 3 rated this wine as 88/100 with the following review:

Lots of herbal notes on this wine, along with some green apple, floral notes, and an almost grassy hint. Medium bodied, and medium acidity. Green notes are a bit more subtle on the palate, with more floral and peach notes. Enjoy this with grilled seafood.
