Amy Millar White
Pillitteri Estates Winery is proud to produce a range of wines in partnership with Amy Millar. Amy was born into equestrian sport, riding horses at an early age on the family farm. She made history with her father and brother at a tournament in Calgary as they became the first family of three to compete for a Canadian Nations Cup team. Amy and Heros made their Olympic debut at Rio 2016 where they were part of Canada’s fourth place finish in the team event.
The 2021 Amy Millar White is a smooth and easy-drinking wine packed with flavour and wonderful balance. The nose is crisp and features aroma of peach, lemon, grapefruit, pineapple, and slight floral undertones. On the palate the wine is just off-dry and repeating flavours found in the aroma are accompanied by the bright acidity and minerality which make the wine so refreshing and clean. The finish leaves a lingering grapefruit and tropical taste which combined with the refreshing quality make this wine the perfect summer sipper. Great for enjoying in the sun in the backyard, casual dining, or cheering on Amy as she represents Canada at the Olympic Games.
