Reviews and Ratings

Jon Steeves - Sommelier rated this wine as 92/100 with the following review:

Tasty, fresh, crisp and brilliant. This traditional method bubbly shines. Showing medium bodied, dry, medium alcohol, declared at 11.3% ABV. Enjoyed sipping this beauty on it’s own. Well balanced. Medium finish with persistence of stone fruit and wet stone minerality. Tasted 2015 vintage in Sept 2018. 92 points.
Sharon Aubie rated this wine as 92/100 with the following review:

What a beautiful bouquet of lime and apple. Tangy flavours of lemon and lime with well balanced acidity.

Would pair well with citrus-based fish or seafood dishes, especially. Also fantastic on its own to toast to your next celebration.

Tasted September 16, 2018
Andrea Shapiro rated this wine as 88/100 with the following review:

Made in the traditional method with a blend of Riesling, Chardonnay and Pinot Blanc. Fruit forward notes of peach, ripe asian pear and cantaloupe. Flavours show pink grapefruit, Macintosh apple skins and flint forward stony mineral finish at the back. Mouthwatering and fresh, with a dry vibrant acidity. This can be generously paired with a variety of foods. Try with honey garlic chicken wings or cheesies! 88 points - September 2018
Simon Chen rated this wine as 88/100 with the following review:

An interesting prosecco-like sparkling from BC. it's a blend of 3 grapes ( Riesling, Pinot Blanc and Chardonnay Musque) with 12g/L residual sugar. Definitely a crowd pleaser with good length of bubbliness.
Jennifer Havers - WSET Level 3 rated this wine as 88/100 with the following review:

Blended from Riesling, Chardonnay, and Pinot Blanc. Vibrant bubbles, lots of lemon, apple, and more subtle brioche notes. Enjoy with any seafood, oysters, or on its own.
