Wine: Sauvignon Blanc, 2017

Winery: Township 7

Why drink it? Fresh and a bit zippy, sauvignon blanc can be a nice break from the bigger reds that we gravitate to in cold weather, or a nice glass to start with before a hearty winter dinner. A nice reminder of spring and summer with aromas of lime, passionfruit, and tart apple slices. With no oak treatment, this wine is light and lively, with the nose following up on the taste buds as the citrus elements come together with flavours of white peach, gooseberry, and a bit of the grassy herbaceous-ness you might expect from sauv blanc. A refreshing finish with balanced acidity.

Price: $19

Pair with: Lighter dishes, seafood such as grilled or pan-fried halibut bathed in lemon butter, with a side of jasmine rice. Salads with light vinaigrettes, or an arugula and asparagus salad with goat cheese, topped with roasted pumpkin seeds and a garnish of snow peas.

Music pairing: Come Monday, Jimmy Buffet
