Twist of Fate Winemaker’s White

LCBO#: 466318
Price: $9.95
Made in: Canada
By: Constellation Brands Inc.

This Canadian blend is composed of Pinot Grigio, Muscat and Chardonnay. The nose seems quite dry at first pour. Then, the fruity grapes grows and hints of charred barrels show up. The mouthfeel is a little crisp, but becomes syrupy. Grapes and caramel taste with some decent bitterness in the finish to blend things. Decent for the inexpensive price.

Naked Grape Fizz Sparkling Rosė

Price: $9.45
Made in: Ontario, Canada

This blended rosé gives out strawberry aromas with a little vinegar at first pour, but disappears and lets the mild yeast show. This results in nice hints of candy (like strawberries and cream ones). Again, a little vinegar sourness was tasted at first, but seems gone now. The fruit is not as strong in the flavours, but nicely balanced with some spicy yeast. Eventually, it gets sweeter with a caramel finish. Made to be a really easy drinking sparkling Rosé and not offend. Kind of a kids (teenager) starter to this style.
