2003 Willow Springs Vidal (Ontario VQA)

Willow Springs is interesting for its location, being north of Toronto, in Stouffville, Ontario. I purchased this wine recently at the LCBO for just under $10. The wine was closed with a plastic cork but doesn't seem to be any worse for wear as a result; in fact, it is really very attractive.

11.3% alc. Rich medium straw hue with greenish glints; some carbonation still, which was not expected. Lovely rich pineapple nose accented with whiffs of tangerine and fleeting hints of pina colada. Off-dry but balanced with scintillating acidity, fine crispness, very fresh and invigorating with flavours that follow onto the palate and a cleansing texture towards the finish.
