Diva Sauvignon Blanc-Semillon VQA

20140310-202914.jpgLCBO#: 179143
Price: $14.95
Made in: Ontario, Canada
By: Legends Estate Winery
Varietal: Sauvignon Blanc, Semillon

This blended white Ontarian wine has aromas of pears, white grapes (sourness), with notes of alcohol and burnt wood. The sourness does show in the beginning of the taste, but the sweetness does come in to help things. Alcohol is still present here, but nothing too offensive. An overall easy-drinking white wine for get-togethers with friends. Fruity and refreshing for summer.

Rating: 3.3/5

Jackson-Triggs Cabernet Franc Icewine


Made in: Ontario, Canada
By: Jackson-Triggs winery

Got this gem at the Jackson-Triggs winery on our tour there. This 2007 red Icewine shows a clean pink-red colour, looking like clear strawberry juice. Sweet aromas of berries and mild honey. The mouthfeel is a nicely coated tongues, but not too syrupy. The same is found in the taste as the scent. Sweet, but not too much to kill the flavours of strawberries and light honey, with notes of plums. This is quite the dessert wine, and quite a treat. Highly recommended.
