Wow. Someone gave this a 70. Remember when you got 70 in English in high school. That essay pretty much sucked. Like, barely intelligible. I'm not saying this wine is going to win a nobel prize for literature, but at the very least it's a satisfying novella with a great surprise ending that you wouldn't hesitate to recommend to your friend to take to the beach. Pale straw colour (yes "coloUr" - it's a Canadian wine some I'm going to spell "colour" in the correct Canadian fashion). Pear and a little citrus - maybe grapefruit, on the nose with just a touch of grassiness. In the lower end of the midrange on acidity. OK midpalate, and could use a bit more body but shines on the home stretch. There is this nice slightly bitter lingering grapefruit that that works for me. So to sum up, not stellar but decent and for me certainly not a 70 pointer. Better than the Prosecco that I payed about the same amount of money for but nowhere near the Red Rooster Gewürz that's in the same price range.

Right off the bat you can tell this is an Australian wine. Big, sweet nose with loads of licorice and black plum. The full-bodied wine is rich on the palate with ripe fruit and American oak. The finish is long and smooth. Will complement a grilled steak.
