Vintage Assessments Tasting Note Producer KIM CRAWFORD
For health reasons, low alcohol wines have become increasingly popular. Recently Canada's most popular New Zealand winery launched Illuminate that puts real flavour back into the bottle. Pale straw in colour, it is bright and fresh with citrusy, ripe, melon-apple-lemon aromas. Dry, light bodied and faintly grassy with fresh, tangerine-wintermelon flavours followed up by a tangy finish. It has 7% alcohol and under 90 calories per 6 oz glass The screwcap keeps it perfectly drinkable in the fridge after opening. Versatile and ready to drink, this genuine crowd-pleaser will surprise your friends and add some sunshine to your life. CSPC 18947

LCBO Text Status Recommended by Vintage Assessments!
New Zealand is at the forefront of lower-calorie, lower-alcohol wines. This one is produced using spinning cone distillation: a gentle process that doesn't use pressure or high temperatures and so has less impact on the aroma and flavour of the final wine. This fresh, aromatic Savvy shows tropical fruit, citrus and herbs and is perfect for seafood.
