Food Pairing Notes
Loves all food, especially Asian cuisine. A perfect accompaniment to fresh air.
John Schreiner says this: 40 Knots White Seas 2016 ($19.90 for 545 cases). There are six white varietals, including Pinot Gris, in this blend. The wine had a long, cool fermentation in stainless steel to preserve the fruit basket of flavours (apple, pear, lime, lemon). The finish is crisp and refreshing. 90.

I have been trying different wines to discover one that I like and I have to say this is by far my favourite! Thank you for helping me find my wine of choice!

Clean and smooth. A nice light wine for rainy days. Recommend.

I was at the Black Fin on vacation and thought I’d try a local wine and I hit the jackpot with 40 Knots White Seas! I’m still remembering how good it was now that I’m home. A new favourite. Can’t wait to have it again!

Lovely bright white blend with a bit of apple and pear tang - an easy go-to patio sipper, with or without food
