Cave Spring Blanc De Blancs Brut, VQA Niagara Escarpment
Tasting Notes: A dry, Brut-style sparkling wine with aromas of ripe Golden Delicious apple, Bartlett pear, bread dough and wet stones. Medium in body and quite rich in feel overall, the palate bursts forth with a tight, vivacious mousse and a seductive kiss of sweetness...(cavespringcellars.com)

Bright gold in colour with fine mousse & medium+ intensity on the nose.
Positives: A simply delightful sparkling that I could just drink everyday. Features lemon, green apple, brioche, some yeast, baked apples, Anjou pear, mandarin & limestone. Medium body with good acidity & a fairly long length.
Interesting Point: I was able to pick up this sparkling at clearance price at LCBO in Brampton for $20.80, which would make this a Best Buy & a Top Pick.
Drink now on its own or pair it with arugula & prosciutto pizza.
Tasted: 18 Nov 12 (congrats to the Argos in making it to the Grey Cup, which I'll be seeing them there ) If they win I'll drink another of this sparkling to celebrate)
