This 100% Chardonnay sparkling wine comes from a beautiful old vines (35+ years old) block on the Beamsville Bench. The base wine was fermented and aged on lees in barrel for 6 months. Made using the traditional method, the second fermentation happened in bottle followed by aging on lees for 36 months! It was disgorged on March 19th, 2022 with a 2 g/L dosage added.
If you can imagine dipping a freshly baked lemon/herb croissant into a cloud then you have some idea of how this wine tastes! The toasty/biscuity and lemon-curd aspect leaps immediately out of the glass, with a background of crème-fraiche and flowers. The palate is full and round, with a very fine mousse showing fresh-baked bread, lemon meringue, roasted almond and unicorn-dust. The terroir and old-vines really come through on the finish with an amazing mineral/flinty core and very present acidity. Enjoy now, but this wine will age gracefully over the next 8+ years if you want it to. Drink with fresh Malpeque oysters, hazelnut crusted halibut, and soft white cheeses.
