Intense aromas of Golden delicious apple, pear and white peach are enlivened with bright citrus notes and hints of lilac. A fine expression of the Chardonnay grape, it showcases uplifting purity of fruit freshening the palate with flavours of crisp orchard fruit, tangy citrus notes and nuances of exotic tropical fruit. Mid-weight with good texture, vibrant acidity and a lengthy mouth-watering finish, enjoy this good-value, food-friendly wine with grilled calamari. (Lisa Isabelle)

Kacaba Cabernet 2015
VQA Niagara Peninsula $14.95 (499384) 13.0 % alcohol
Pale ruby in colour, this blend—90% Cabernet Franc/10% Cabernet Sauvignon—displays lifted aromas of red currant and raspberry with intriguing perfumed floral, spice and dried herb notes. Medium-bodied and dry with fresh acidity and barely perceptible tannin, the red fruit replays on the palate with hints of tobacco, spice and pepper. There’s good value here. (Lisa Isabelle)
