A Sparkling wine from champagne varieties; Chardonnay and Pinot Noir but with the addition of Cabernet Franc and icewine as the dosage make for an unusual treat on several levels: A Canadian sparkling wine, enticingly perfumed with strawberry, peach juice and watermelon, followed by a mouthful of red berries and a touch of spice.
Food Matching: Enjoy before a meal with assorted appetizers; during a meal with grilled salmon, roasted herb chicken or lightly spiced pork tenderloin; or after a meal simply on its own.
Vinification: A traditional ‘méthode’ sparkling wine made with hand-picked Chardonnay and Pinot Noir grapes, are the base wine for this sparkling wine from champagne varieties but with the addition of 10% Cabernet Franc aged all in stainless steel just before Tirage. After 12 to 14 months on lees the wine is degorged, a ‘dosage’ of Cabernet Franc Icewine and Vidal Icewine is added top finish the wine as ‘off-dry’
