A rich, creamy and silky textured wine with complex lees notes, lemon, and nectarine fruit and a long crisp finish.

Reserved for Ontario sparkling but indicative of a bench-steppe foothills style because it just has that spark. Very...

100% estate grown Chardonnay, partially barrel-fermented and then aged for 5 years in bottle before being disgorged, this has medium-high intensity aromas that are bready, nutty and lemony. On the palate, it's medium-full bodied with citrus and biscuity flavours, a hint of sweetness that's balanced by lively acids and bright mousse. The finish is long, clean, and dry with hints of mineral. Tasted Apr/2017.
