$16.99 in British Columbia, $14.99 in Nova Scotia and $15.99 in Manitoba.

The big brand from Down Under comes through again with a well-engineered white at a decent price.

Full-bodied, it shows good balance between tropical fruit and crisp acidity, with whispers of butter and oak. A versatile white, it would pair nicely with roast chicken, halibut or salmon.
