Gorgeous mousse with a lovely balanced freshness on the palate. Frothy good aromas of green apples and white pear. Made from 100% Chardonnay grapes using the traditional champagne method of the second fermentation in the bottle. Extraordinary length and satisfaction! Could this be Canada's best bubbly?

Named Cuveé Peter F. Huff 2006 in honour of Lanny and Catherine Huff’s late son this sparkling is a proud addition to the Huff Estates roster of fine wines. The all-county Blanc de Blancs is fashioned in the méthode traditionnelle manner and aged 3 years on lees. Huff’s is the only winery in Prince Edward County to release a first and second vintage of methode championoise sparkling wine.

Our crisp-edged 2006 cuvee displays a distinctive County minerality with underlying aromas of mandarin, orange peel, citrus, ginger and a hint of nuttiness. Blessed with a delicate mousse, it is augmented with flavours of dried apricot, toasted bread and freshly baked lemon pie, yet balanced with a subtle perception of sweetness. Brut--ifal stuff.

Unquenchable by Natalie MacLean

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a fiesty North American answer to Hugh Johnson and Jancis Robinson. She can write beautifully about wine.

The Financial Times of London

There are very few people in the wine world who "get it" and Natalie is one of those who brings more fun to a buttoned-up and stodgy game.
