Pearl Morissette, Cuvée Metis Blanc
Origin: Niagara Peninsula, Ontario, Canada
Producer's Note: 100% Chardonnay and a blend of home-grown and purchased grapes. An electric number, driven by vivacious fruit and undeviating, charged acidity. The aromas on the nose are cool, crisp and appealingly zesty. The vibrant palate is rich in lush fruit and invigorating freshness. The textured and surprisingly generous mouthfeel leads to a finish of penetrating salinity and pretty citrus flavours. A lightning storm in a blooming orchard.
