Profile

Smell

Like walking through an orchard in late summer, there are aromas of ripe peaches and pears, yellow apples, and quince. The fruit is complemented by hints of bergamot and a minerality reminiscent of wet slate, along with faint lemon & fresh pastry notes.

Taste

Bursting with ripe fruit, this white, while intense and medium-bodied, never gets too heavy. It finishes with bright acidity and lovely lemon meringue flavours that complement the peach and pear flavours that persist throughout. Lovers of unoaked Chardonnay or white Châteauneuf will find a lot to like here, but with its bright acidity and appealing fruit flavours, it's got something for everyone.

Pairing

A great match for full-flavoured, grilled fish dishes like mackerel or swordfish, or try alongside spicy, aromatic Thai coconut curry.

Aromas and Flavours

Peach

Fuzzy peach candies, or real-life fuzzy peaches fresh from a fresh B.C fruit stand.

Pear

A romantic picnic in the orchard, with your partner and their favourite white wine.

Apple

From Granny Smith to Red Delicious, apple makes for a delightfully crisp aroma.

Lemon / Lime

Common in cool climate white wines, this aroma can range from fresh citrus to lemon zest.

Stone

Remember playing with pebbles as a child and giving them a lick out of curiosity?

Description

Fans of Châteauneuf-du-Pape will likely be well acquainted with Domaine Chante Cigale, one of the region's most historic and well-respected properties. While their flagship wines are highly acclaimed and eagerly snapped up by collectors, the winery (thankfully) makes a delicious "second label" wine: Cicada. Named in tribute to the "singing" cicadas common in the south of France, the wines are approachable 'everyday' examples of the estate's signature style.

Cicada Blanc, new to Canada, is a delicious blend of two of the southern Rhône's main white grapes (Grenache Blanc & Picpoul) blended with Viognier sourced from the northern Rhône. The result is a dry, unoaked white with great aromatic intensity and a fresh, vibrant finish. Enjoy at 10 C now or over the next 2-3 years.
