What We’re Drinking: Wines of the Week
Happy Wine Wednesday, if you need some sipping inspiration, we’ve got you covered! Read on to see what your angels are recommending this week!
Palatine Hills Neufeld Vineyard Sauvignon Blanc 2015 – This Sauvignon Blanc is a crisp and refreshing cool climate Ontario alternative to the New Zeland steady. If you’re looking for something unique and offbeat from Ontario, this is your wine!
Tasting Note: Visitors to Palantine Hills winery can experience a collection of carefully preserved War of 1812 artifacts, such as musket balls and crested medals, which have been unearthed from between the vineyard rows. This intriguing take on Sauvignon Blanc is a touch off-dry with grapefruit, apple and sweetgrass leading to a pleasantly herbaceous finish. Pair with green curries, veggie sushi or grilled seafood.
