Reviews and Ratings

L.J. Palmer WSET 3 rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

To begin with, the wines name is derived from a strong independent woman: Violette Selfridge. Violette, for example, is a sparkling wine named after Violette Selfridge, a pilot who flew a Gyspy Moth airplane around the world in 1928. A crisp and fresh sparkling wine, made using the Charmat method, with a good quantity of bubbles. A lovely aroma featuring apples, citrus and golden brioche and super fizzy in the mouth.
Jane Staples - Certified Sommelier rated this wine as 88/100 with the following review:

A youthful sparkling wine made using the Charmat method. Crafted with 2/3 Pinot Noir and 1/3 Chardonnay varietals. Light and fruity, showing brioche and apple notes, with fine mousse.
Tasted April 2019
Great value on this bright and crisp Niagara sparkling wine with brioche, ripe yellow and soft citrus flavours on the nose and palate. Terrific quality. Enjoy now and for the next couple of years. - Community Wine Reviews
