Riddled Sparkling, 2020

Shipped and sold by Flat Rock Cellars

2020 Niagara Peninsula 750 mL, 12.5% ALC/VOL

Riddled is only made as a vintage sparkling. We enter each harvest with the goal of expressing that vintage's story and conveying the purity, complexity and potential of our exceptional site. Only in the finest vintages will we craft Riddled, our signature sparkling, and the 2020 vintage is our first since the tiny 2017 bottling. Prior to that, you must look all the way back to 2011, making this an extremely special release.

Only 405 cases of this stunning Blanc de Blancs were produced from Chardonnay grapes that were specially selected from hand-picked blocks of the Flat Rock Vineyard. The whole clusters were pressed and the free run juice allowed to flow gently via gravity to neutral French oak barrels for primary fermentation. In the traditional method, the wine was then transferred to bottle for its 12-month secondary fermentation.

Tasting Notes

The 2020 Riddled is the culmination of our soil, climate and winemaking expertise coming together to harness the power of Mother Nature in a bottle of wine. The palpable acidity and rich structure of the 2020 growing season come together to create a complex and vibrant sparkling wine. The expressive nose exudes notes of freshly baked almond croissant, crisp green apple and citrus, while the palate matches that energy with flavours of wet stone and electric lemon meringue.
