I just tasted a lush, peachy, spicy, herbaceous, delicious local white. A real WOW! And it costs less than $20. Not terribly different from Chardonnay – but fresher, and sexier. The first ever Marsanne-Viognier blend, from a winery named after a Loyalist soldier. Crafted by one of my favourite Niagara winemakers, Philip Dowell, of Angels’ Gate.
