Crisp and clean with a rich yeasty, leesy nose and freshly baked bread. Toasty to the max. Pair with oysters and other shellfish.

|Valérie Dufour - Accredited Sommelier rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:|
Nose is very yeasty, like when you dilute yeast in warm water to make pizza dough. Crisp wine with personality and you get the pastry aroma in retro. Well made. Would be great with crab cakes. Good value.
|Jennifer Havers - WSET Level 3 rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:|
Very crisp, lots of yeast and bread along with pear on the nose. Try with oysters or shrimp cocktail.
|Matt Steeves - Certified Sommelier rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:|
Baked apples, fresh bread, with a touch of lemon peel on the nose. Sweet orchard fruit and apple turnover on the palate. A fine Charmat method bubbly made from 100% Ontario Vidal. Tasted January 2016. 89 points. Matt Steeves - www.quercusvino.ca

The 2013 Ward 5 Brut Blanc is brilliant pale straw, declared 11% ABV, Single varietal vidal, single block, charmat method Brut. The aromatics show complexity of bruised apple, marzipan, bread crust, citrus. This is a complex wine at an accessible price point. Enjoy 2016-2018.

Brioche and apples on the nose of this Ontario sparkling wine. Fine mousse and bright acidity.
|Sean O'Regan - Certified Sommelier rated this wine as 88/100 with the following review:|
Pale yellow with small uniform bubbles, lightly oxidized ripe apple, pear and toast on the nose. Creamy mousse, light bodied, touch of sweet with the apple and nutty notes. Medium finish. Try with pickerel in a light butter cream sauce with toasted sesame.

A decent bubbly…
Presentation: Busy. The key elements of the bubbly seem hidden, like the varietal and producer.
Appearance: Light yellow
Nose: Marzipan, bruised green apple
Taste: Small bubbles and still with marzipan and bruised green apples.
Finish: a little sour on the back end.
Overall impression: Decent bubbly to start off an evening.
Value: 3 out of 5
