  • How much: $12 CAD – 375 ml., July 2016
  • Do I love this enough to drink it again: no
  • Would I recommend this to fruit wine aficionados: nah

Visual: Non-vintage. Pours very, very light straw yellow, crystal clear, a few micro bubbles along the perimeter.

Nose: acidic tangy filtered apple juice, hints of pear and white grape, a bit of alcohol (lvl-3)-intensity

Attack: watery-tangy entry

Mid-palate: bright acidity, green apple, (lvl-2-sweetness), medium sour tangy hit

Finish: hints of lime, green apple exhale

Summary: I starts out with a rather unimpressive thin entry, followed by only a basic green apple flavour and okay acidity. It didn’t strike me as particularly refined or complex, just apples juice, yeast and some fermentation. Skip it.
