Grapes: Chardonnay 70% ; Grape Pinot Noir 30%
What a gorgeous wine, we love this stuff. And it's Canadian, brilliant.
Using the ‘methode classique’, individual batches of Chardonnay and Pinot Noir are fermented in tank. A cuvee is made using a selection of these wines which are then bottled with yeast and sugar. After ageing on the lees for approximately 30 months, the bottles are riddled, disgorged and a dosage of Icewine (110ml) is added.
Food matching: Enjoy before a meal with salty appetizers, seafood or creamy risotto or with fresh fruit and creamy cheeses.

YOU GET THE IDEA!
Sparkling and deeply refreshing, dry but with hints of honey, perfumed with apricots, yeast and ripe apples, with flavours of tropical fruit and sweet grapefruit. Excellent value.
