This Weekend's Pick

Wine of the Weekend

TINI Sauvignon Blanc

It’s spring cleaning season inside the house and out, and hard work always deserves a glass of wine! This week’s pick has undergone some spring cleaning of its own, with a new label that throws a splash of colour where there once was none. TINI Sauvignon Blanc is the perfect pour for just after getting to those hard-to-reach corners or clearing out the garden to make way for new growth. A glass of TINI is definitely one of the joys of spring.

Tasting Notes: TINI is 100% Sauvignon Blanc from Friuli, Italy and leads with a core of bright citrus (think lemon and grapefruit), light herbal notes, and a clean finish. With a softer texture than many other Sauvignon Blanc wines, TINI stands out for its easy-drinking style.

Enjoy With: Seafood dishes, chicken piccata (lemon chicken), spring salads, herb-rubbed goat cheese, or just with a thirsty palate!

Style: A light-bodied, fruity white wine.

Terroir/Region: Friuli lies in the mountainous Northern reaches of Italy near the border of Austria and Slovenia, and it’s one of the best regions in the country for growing white wines. The air in the high mountains stays cool and the elevation gives vineyards great exposure to the sun. The final wines are ripe and fruity while having balancing acidity to keep you coming back for more.

Producer: TINI is made by the Caviro group which is responsible for many of Italy’s best-known value-focused wines. It looks for growers who can offer quality at a great price and then it strives to make clean, fruit-driven wines for those who want great value.

Availability: TINI Sauvignon Blanc is available online and in the Italy section of your local LCBO. Grab your bottle now so it’s good and chilled for post-spring cleaning!
