White wine 750ml
12.5% alc./vol

Mouth-filling mousse with both full-bodied weight and precise acid driven focus.Immediately lush and toasty with brioche and lemon rind, enveloping some hazelnut and marzipan in the background. Lemon and white cranberry dominate the fruit spectrum but fennel seed and a gravelly minerality play on the focused finish. 100% Pinot Noir harvested from the Queenston Road Vineyard on September 04, 2015 at 19.0° Brix. Primary fermentation at very cool temperatures <12°C> in stainless steel to preserve fruit flavours. Tirage was done January 29, 2016 and the wine was left for 22 months to develop on the lees.

This crisp, 28 month on lees, 100% Pinot Noir has a dosage of Chardonnay, to give it extra crispness and fruit character: lemon, lime and green apple bring a freshness level to this traditional bubble that I’m a big fan of, and there’s even some floral amongst the yeasty and baked bread notes.
