2020 Okanagan Valley 750 mL, 11.6% ALC/VOL
  • Chardonnay Musqué
  • Pinot Blanc
  • Riesling


Tasting Notes: Tiny spiraling bubbles rise through a straw-yellow background. Lovely aromas of red apple, citrus and yeast gently escape from the glass. This light-bodied, refreshing wine has a lively yet creamy mousse, and flavours of citrus and apple. Notes of lemon, mineral and yeasty dough linger on the finish.

Food Pairings: A wonderful sipping wine, aperitif or celebration wine for any occasion. Enjoy with a fresh catch of trout or salmon pan-fried; lemon chicken; vegetarian spring rolls; sushi; calamari; oven roasted tomatoes with goat cheese on toasted baguette; bruschetta; Gruyere, Swiss and Emmenthal cheese fondue with light rye bread.

For a refreshing mouth-feel serve between 10 and 12C.

Winemaking:This Méthode Classique sparkling wine is a blend of 34.2% Pinot Blanc (Semper Sitiens Vineyard in Lake Country), 33% Riesling (Compact Orchard in Lake Country and Sumac Slope Vineyard in Okanagan Falls) and 32.8% Chardonnay Musque (Villa Vista Vineyard in Kelowna). This base wine underwent a second fermentation in bottle and aged sur lie for 18 months. The sparkling wine was then disgorged and topped with a dosage of the base wine and natural sugar, for the perfect balance of acidity and sweetness.

Sweetness Level: 9.6 g/L
