Crush First White VQA, 2011, Ontario, Canada
What you should first understand about this wine is that it is a complex blend of Pinot Grigio, Sauvignon Blanc, Riesling, Muscat, Gewürztraminer, and Chardonnay … whew! So, with a blend like that, who wouldn’t want to take Crush Wines, First White for a test drive!
When reviewing the colour of First White, you’ll note its concentrated straw like hue, showing depth in visual character. On the nose, you will undoubtedly pick up a strong citrus and pear mix, coupled with a light floral scent, with a touch of spice. On the palate, the citrus and high acidity play the dominant, making it a little difficult to appreciate, truly, what a blend of all of these varietals could do.
This wine retails at the LCBO for $12.95
We gave it a score of 2.75/5
