Our sixth and final bottle in the Wines That Give Back feature this month comes from Ontario’s Legends Estates Winery, a white wine blend of Semillon and Sauvignon Blanc, from their Diva line of wines.
The Charitable Factor
As you may have guessed from the name of this wine, the proceeds from each bottle sold goes to a charity that is local to this wine makers region, a charity called Women’s Place of South Niagara. The mission of Women’s Place is simple yet vital; to support and aid abused women and children through services such as a 24-hour Crisis Line, shelters, and a slew of other necessary and core transitional services.
Legends Estates Winery fittingly named the wine Diva, as a ‘DIVA is a woman of outstanding talent and energy, with a larger than life quality‘; all things about one’s self that may be forgotten when battling situations of abuse.
About the Wine
On colour, it holds a clear wheat hue. On the nose, scents of citrus green apple and mango are present. On the palate, high levels of acidity are present amongst tastes of continued apple, and lemon. A very non-intrusive drink that is plainly palatable.
This wine retails at the LCBO for $14.95
We gave this wine a score of 2.75 out of 5.
