Pinot Blanc (85%) fermented for 3 weeks followed by 2 months on “light” lees, then blended with 15% Müller-Thurgau. Floral and stone-fruit aromas precede a gently citrus palate with peach-pit and tropical notes and some zesty peel in the finish.
This has a bright, joyous nose of black cherry, plums, savoury herbs, raspberry and bramble. There is interesting depth to this Gamay with cherry, yes, but also some spicy/peppery notes and structural tannins.
Clear pale gold. Nose of Granny Smith apple, pineapple and lime peel set off with a bit of tonic water or iodine bitterness. Light-bodied, tasting of lemon, pineapple, melon and grapefruit. Crisp acidity, but this wine is fruity, not sour. Excellent with shellfish or delicate white fish. Drink immediately.
Pleasant nose of white fruits, fresh and light; a mineral touch adds complexity. Elegant, very fine on the palate; classy acidity, completely dry. Maybe a bit shy in its expression, but it is more about finesse and elegance than power.
Shows citrus lemon and lime on the nose with stony minerality and soft spice from minimal oak aging. Lovely mouthfeel with fresh citrusy fruit and balance through the finish.
Like the Zorzal wines, the fruit for this Chardonnay comes from the high-elevation Uco Valley. What a gorgeous nose of creamy peach, minerality, subtle spices and touches of apricot and citrus. Well-defined stone fruit in the mouth with lovely spice, vanilla and minerals wrapped around a core of bright acidity. So delicious and elegant. Would pair well with broiled PEI lobster slathered in butter.
A more restrained style from Harry McWatters in a vintage that was harvested the earliest on record. It shows a nose pear, elegant oak spice, green apple and toasted vanilla. It is beautiful on the palate with a fresh and vibrant feel in the mouth that showcases a balanced package of pear, apple crisp, integrated oak, spice and a finessed finish.
