Tasted May 7th 2017. Discovered by way of the Sunday sipper club with N. McLean. This is a wonderful sparkling Rielsling made in Ontario Canada. It is a wonderful appetitive wine that matches from potatoe chips to shrimp don't mix it with anything just add Mrs Vickies Lime and Black Pepper chips. Good price a fun sparkling wine to be enjoyed.

Awesome easy drinking bubbly. Aromas are inviting showing major floral notes. The palate is dry with big scrumptious bubbles and lovely orchard fruit notes. A lovely easy pairing kitchen party bubbly. Tasted many many times so here is the review! @sommsosa | co-owner of bespoketastings.ca

Pamela Chiles rated this wine as 88/100 with the following review:

Nice sparkler at a good price. Apple, grapefruit/lemon, yeast, and a hint of floral and stone fruit to give it a slightly off-dry feel, although it is crisp and refreshing. Plenty of nice mousse in the glass, too. Great for an elegant summer garden party.
Melanie Aubert rated this wine as 88/100 with the following review:

Sparkler made using the charmat method, with green apple, peach, apricot, and lemon. Big, bold bubbles. Quite nice and refreshing!

Terry Jeans rated this wine as 88/100 with the following review:

Low alcohol, dry sparkling, that is an easy sipper. It has aromas of green apple, yeast with a taste of mint, ripe peach and citrus. It has medium to high acid and is very refreshing on the palate. Good value.
Colin McKone rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

Sparkling with aromas of bread, green apples, peach with the peach and apple flavours following through on the finish. Enjoy it on it's own or pair with white seafood or a light chicken dish.
