Celebrate the Canada Day long-weekend with a Fancy Farm Girl! This Riesling-driven white blend is the perfect wine to serve at a Canada Day picnic or a backyard BBQ. With a modest 11.5% alcohol, it’s easy to enjoy this wine with brunch, lunch or dinner. This is the quintessential summer sipper. It’s friendly, thirst-quenching and will leave you wanting to top up your glass.
Tasting Note: On the nose, this white blend delivers complex aromas of bright lemon, white grapefruit, peach and honey with notes of mineral and spice. The palate is fresh, crisp and full of citrus, Granny Smith apple, peach and mineral flavours. This off-dry wine is perfectly balanced with just the right amount of citrus-like acidity. The finish is mouthwateringly refreshing.
Enjoy With: Fish, seafood, chicken, pork, mild cheese, salads or spicy dishes. It’s also great all by itself.
Style: Aromatic and flavourful off-dry white blend.
Terroir / Region: The Niagara Peninsula is divided into several small sub-appellation wine growing regions, each with its own unique mix of soil, micro-climate and topography called terroir. Fruit for this wine is grown on the Staff family farm located in the 20 Mile Bench appellation near the town of Jordan. Here, rolling hills composed of clay and limestone provide the grapes with excellent growing conditions.
Producer: Farming and grape growing are in winemaker Sue-Ann Staff’s DNA. Her two hundred year old farm has seen five generations of family work and play. As one of Ontario’s leading winemakers, Sue-Ann wanted to make a range of wines that was playful and reflected her personality. Fancy Farm Girl is the result: an approachable and charming selection of wines for everyday enjoyment.
Availability: Sue-Ann Staff Fancy Farm Girl Frivolous White 2014 is available year round in the VQA section at the LCBO.
