Reviews and Ratings

Tania Thomas - CSW, WSET ADV rated this wine as 91/100 with the following review:

Rich and complex Niagara vintage sparkler, vinified with hand-picked 100% estate grown Chardonnay from the Short Hills Bench vineyard, crafted with great finesse and elegance. Abundant aromas and flavours of lemon drops and buttery apple pie, subtle floral notes and pronounced minerality. Fine, persistent bubbles, and a lingering creamy finish. Great served with smoked salmon crostini, sprinkled with capers and finished with a splash of lemon juice.
Heather Wall - CS; WSET Advanced rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

Lots of pretty bubbles with staying power. Crisp and clean palate cleanser after a long couple of hours tasting wines. Citrus and granny smith apple, tea biscuit, lemon zest. Easily comparable to quality French champagne. XD and light body. Asian fusion dishes, seafood or as an aperitif. Cheers!
Blanc de blanc means that this sparkling wine was made from white grapes only. Source: Winery
