Reviews and Ratings

Deborah Podurgiel Certified Sommelier rated this wine as 93/100 with the following review:

Time 2018 Brut is an elegant beauty of a bubble. Pale pink pearl with the tiniest of bubbles in the glass, fresh with a clean mineral nose that is reminiscent of the tangy smell of sea, along with aromas of baked pie crust and citrus florals. Made in méthode cuvee clos, bone-dry, with a fine creamy mousse, lifted with lemon meringue and nutty flavours finishing long, clean, vibrant with balanced acidity. Simply elegant and delicious. Currently, available at the winery, but soon to be on V.Q.A. shelves. Buy it by the case.

Produced from 55% Pinot Noir and 45% Chardonnay, the cuvée was fermented in neutral French oak barrels, stainless-steel barrel and tank. Lees stirring in barrels added freshness, structure, creaminess and nutty flavours to this sparkling brut with 12.4% abv and 1.0 g/l residual sugar. Pair with brunch dishes, smoked salmon bennies, friends and family – anytime.

Time Winery & Kitchen, President and CEO, Harry McWatters celebrated the open-house launch of Time Winery Brut 2018 on July 12 2019, a beautiful, elegant brut bubble and a first for Director of Winemaking, Graham Pierce.

Who could know that shortly after that celebration, on July 23 2019, Harry McWatters would peacefully pass on in his sleep. So, here is a tip of the hat, as well as a toast to the man and his joy of bubbles and all things wine.

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.
