Tasting Notes

Geographical Indication: Ontario, VQA

Vineyard: Estate Vineyard

 

Appearance: Clear, very pale lemon-coloured intensity. 

Nose: Clean, medium+ intense aromas of apple and pear with hints of strawberry. 

Palate: Off-dry, medium+ acid, medium fine mousse, medium body, medium alcohol, medium+ intense flavours of apple, green strawberry, Swedish Berries, and hints of chalky mineral notes.

Quality: This is good quality sparkling wine with an emphasis on freshness and drinkability. It will make a good food companion, thanks to the persistent bubbles, which act as a palate cleanser between bites. Drink now to enjoy the freshness of the wine.

Food pairings: Oysters, popcorn, sushi (spicy tuna roll), goat cheese and almond salad, shrimp cocktail, salmon gravlax, fried fish and chips, cheese (especially brie and camembert).

 

Wine Writer’s Comment:

This is an easy-drinking sparkling wine with a touch of sweetness that's balanced with vibrant freshness. It's a blanc de noir, which means that it's a white wine made using red grapes, in this case Gamay. The juice is pressed off the skins before it has a chance to take on any pink hues. I like that as a blanc de noir, characters of the Gamay grape come through in subtle red fruit notes like strawberry and Swedish berries. This wine is made using the Charmat Method, where the second fermentation takes place inside a pressurized tank. Wines made using the Charmat Method don't usually have the intense toasty characters of a Champagne or Traditional Method sparkling wine, but the process is much higher in quality than simply injecting the wine with CO2. Just in time for the holidays, this wine is great for celebratory occasions, as an aperitif, or as a pairing for the first course in a big meal.
