Critic's Rating 90 pts

Tasting Notes: Pleasant aromas of floral, strawberry and clementine leave you feeling excited for the summer and ready for good company. On the palate, the happy bubbles dance around with flavours of fresh field strawberries and cream, lemon, crab apple and ruby red grapefruit.

Winemaker's Notes: The Charmat Method is one that uses the concept of utilizing a secondary fermentation to incorporate bubbles and a slight increase of alchol into a finished wine. Unlike in traditionally made sparkling this is occurring in a temperature and pressure controlled thank . Fermentation happens under high pressure levels and cold temps, and this is how bubbles are incorporated into the wine. This wine is produced from Riesling, Sauvignon Blanc and Gamay Noir.

Food Pairing: Strawberries and angel food cake, asparagus and strawberry salad with balsamic and St. Agur, pasta (penne, pesto, parmesan), grilled salmon with arugula, shrimp on toast, pizza Bianco.

Critic's Rating

This sparkling wine is made from a base of Gamay and Riesling with a bit of Chardonnay and Pinot for good measure. Secondary fermentation took place in charmat tanks to create the precious bubbles. It shows a lively a mousse in the glass with aromas of fresh red berries, plums, and subtle earthy/savoury notes. It has a lively feel on the palate with the full spectrum of raspberries, cherries and strawberry tart with juicy plums, touch of citrus zest and mouth-watering acidity. Made in a dry, fresh style.
