Persistent fine bubbles, with fresh and fruit-focused flavours of nectarine, sour cherry and lemon loaf. Lively and well balanced palate, with a long finish. Serve well chilled.
VQA Niagara Peninsula
Selected in the vineyard for making sparkling wines, the two plots of Pinot Noir and Chardonnay were harvested early to ensure the final wine had moderate alcohol, and sufficient acidity. Picked by hand whole-cluster pressed in fractions, the clear juice was fermented at cold temperatures in stainless steel and neutral French oak. The “cuvee” was blended, cold stabilized and sterile filtered. Secondary fermentation took place in bottle and was aged on lees for an average of one year before being riddled and disgorged.
Cellar Potential: Drink within three years.
