Gold with a touch if copper in colour with medium intensity & fine mousse. This sparkling smells & taste like fine Champagne, but at least half the price & it's Canadian! This sparkling shows notes of baked apple, yeast, pine nuts, brioche, lemon and lime stone.

One of Canada's finest - and consistent - sparklers.
This recent tasting was the 2010, disgorged March 2013.
Great persistent bubbles, not quite fine in size. Light golden yellow colour.
On the nose, heaps of apple with wild strawberry and a hint of lime.
On the palate, apple remains, a dance of both green apple and red delicious - the latter lending a "sweet" perception to this dry wine. The citrus is there too, with great acidic balance. Yeasty notes were faint.
Finish is medium-plus in length, and mousse never stopped. Great value!
