While fighting waves of summer heat the past few days we have taken the time to delve into the world of white wines. While we generally prefer a robust red, the whites seem very appealing when it’s too hot to move.
With this in mind we grabbed a bottle of Homegrown Riesling by Megalomaniac from the LCBO and had it in our backyard.
Sadly they don’t have much of a website at the moment and the bottle really doesn’t reveal much about the vineyard but it is 100% VQA and based in the Niagara region.
This would pair very well with light affair such as fish and salads. A nice beet salad or something with fruit and a few nuts in it.
You can purchase a bottle at the LCBO for $13.95 and it sits at 10.5% ABV.
Appearance: Light yellow with good legs.
Aroma: Nice barrel notes. Light fruityness like banana and mango.
Taste: Lots of line and other citrus notes. Orange comes in too.
Aftertaste: Dry and short.
Overall: A great refreshing wine in this heat.
