Reviews and Ratings

James rated this wine as 93/100
Jennifer Havers - WSET Level 3 rated this wine as 92/100 with the following review:

A beautiful, fragrant and earthy Pinot Noir fermented with wild yeasts. From the Kelowna area, this Pinot shows some great earthy notes along with vibrant cherry, plum, and red fruit on the nose, along with hints of graphite and warm spice. Bright acidity on the palate, with earthy tannins and more rustic notes on the palate, beautifully balanced with those cherry and fruity notes. Enjoy with grilled salmon.
Deborah Podurgiel - Certified Sommelier rated this wine as 91/100 with the following review:

Tantalus Blanc de Noir 2015 is a vibrant, luxurious traditional-method bubble produced from a single block of Pinot Noir on the Tantalus estate. A delicate pink in the glass, the nose is fresh with brioche, ripe red berries. This is a dry bubble with a gentle and persistent mousse on the palate showing ripe red apple, rhubarb and soft citrus flavours. Beautifully put together and to be enjoyed now and for the next five or so years. This wine was disgorged in the Spring of 2018 and received a light dosage of the 2015 Pinot Noir before finishing its second fermentation in bottle.
