Lets be honest, we purchased this wine because of the moose on the bottle. It screamed Canadian to us and we’re suckers for a bit of Canadiana.
Konzelmann Estate Winery is based out of the Niagara region. They claim they make Germanic whites (and complex reds!) which is a style I can get behind. It’s interesting to note that they were officially the 7th winery to open it’s doors in the area.
The grape in the Canada White is a riesling, an interesting choice to grow in the Niagara region.
You can purchase a bottle at the LCBO for $12.95 a bottle and it sits at a nice easy drinking 12%.
Appearance: Good legs, beautiful light blonde colour.
Aroma: Peaches and strawberries. They mention lychee which I can certainly smell.
Taste: More peaches and apricot. Apples. Very sweet without going over the top.
Aftertaste: None at all.
Overall: A great refreshing wine.
