In hopeful anticipation of bringing home gold, we’ve decided to feature a few of our country’s great golden wines as this week’s TASTING NOTES.

Cheers and Go, Canada, Go!!

Southbrook Poetica Chardonnay 2009

Reviewed by: Tony Aspler

Editor Rating: Excellent


Niagara, Canada

Review Summary:

A magnificent Chardonnay that comes on like a Chassagne-Montrachet. Deep straw colour; spicy, Burgundian nose, touch of barnyard, apple; ripe and full on the palate: generous, toasty and spicy orange, pineapple and melon flavours. Great balance and length.


Five Rows Craft Wine of Lowrey Vineyards Sauvignon Blanc 2009

Reviewed by: Evan Saviolidis

Editor Rating: Very Good


St David’s Bench, Canada

Review Summary:

Another top white wine from Five Rows! Melon, grapefruit, lime, and mint are all in the mix. It is crisp, long in the mouth and very well made.


Blomidon Estate Winery 2011

Reviewed by: Sean Wood

Editor Rating: Very Good


Tidal Bay, Nova Scotia, Canada

Review Summary:

Floral scents, subtle stone fruit, green apple and mineral, with green apple more dominant on the palate. Shows typically brisk acidity and a clean, dry finish.


Looking at the small things that make life great and the people who create them.
