This Weekend's Pick

Wine of the Weekend

Mare Di Sirena Pinot Grigio

Wine often comes with a background: the story of a whimsical character, a family legacy, an ancient vineyard, or a fuzzy critter often help introduce us to what’s in the bottle. For this week’s wine, we have found our favourite combination of great wine and a great story. Mare Di Sirena Pinot Grigio is new to the LCBO shelves, but its story of mermaids helping vines grow, a great price and even better wine, has us spellbound!

Tasting Notes: This classic Pinot Grigio shows flavours of lemon, lime, white peach and hints of apple and pear. These bright, crisp flavours and a mineral note lead to a refreshing finish, drawing you back for a second glass.

Enjoy With: Seafood dishes and summer salads, or on its own. A perfect regional Italian match is Orzo Risotto with shrimp, lemon and garlic.

Style: An extra-dry, light-bodied white wine.

Terroir/Region: Altitude and proximity to the sea define the vineyards that are used to make Mare Di Sirena. The cool sea breezes, blown toward the vineyards by the mermaids of the sea nearby, slow the ripening of the grapes and build balanced, zesty flavours for us to enjoy. We told you it was a good story!

Producer: The team at Mare di Sirena has focused on re-defining value and its hard work has created a great Italian Pinot Grigio with the best price around. All we have to say is thank you!!!
