Irony of ironies, although I live in Canada, it’s almost impossible for me to purchase a wine grown and produced in Ontario living here on BC’s west coast.
This was picked up during a trip to the Niagara region in March 2015. The Vinemount Ridge VQA is a sub-appellation and 2011 was a cool vintage.
The wine is a shade a light lemon and has a nose of citrus and Granny Smith apple with caramel and oak.
The palate is dry with average acidity, more green apple, lemon butter, toffee and yes, oak, lots of oak.
A WSET Good wine – extremely heavy wood makes the elegant fruit difficult to enjoy.
