Pours golden yellow with lots of effervescence and a slight haze. The head recedes almost as rapidly as it builds. Bit of banana on the nose. The initial sweetness on the palate reminds me of the sweet corn paste in the tamales at Tacos El Asador on Bloor. Warming-up in the glass there’s an increasing Chardonnay-like quality on the nose and lots of citrus and sour cherry on the palate.
