Weekly Wine – Another Unreserved

Year: N/A
Canada
750 ml
12% ABV
8.99 (BC Liquor)

First off – This wine has nothing to do with the unreserved wine I reviewed last week.
There is not too much wine from British Columbia in Ontario. This is a mystery to me. Ontario used to have a nice selection of B.C. wine, but these days that is not so.
On a short trip to B.C. recently, I was able to purchase a few bottles.
I chose this one because it came with a free Mason style mug.
The wine is ok – but just barely.
The taste of peaches and pears comes through quite prominently. This may sound nice but these peaches and pears are overripe. They are squishy and a step or two from being rotten. Will you eat this fruit or throw it into the compost. This is the taste of the peaches and pears in this wine. A familiar taste yet one that is not always welcome.
It is also a bit acidic. I believe that these are the sulphate because I don’t think that this is the natural acidity of the wine that is coming through. This wine is a blend. It is made “from imported and domestic” wines according to the label. And these wines tend to be of questionable taste.
This one is of questionable taste as well. You can easily get better white wines for the same price.
But I like the mug.
