A medium-bodied, refreshing sparkler that is slightly off-dry, yet finishes dry as a result of the delicate tannins from the Cabernet Franc. On the nose there are wonderful aromas of strawberry, peach juice, watermelon and currant. On the palate this wine is bursting with red berries and currants which linger through on the finish with an added note of spice.
A traditional ‘méthode’ sparkling wine made with hand-picked Chardonnay and Pinot Noir grapes, as the base wine, and the addition of 10% Cabernet Franc aged all in stainless steel just before Tirage. After 12 to 14 months on lees the wine is disgorged, a ‘dosage’ of Cabernet Franc Icewine and Vidal Icewine is added.
Enjoy before a meal with assorted appetizers; during a meal with grilled salmon, roasted herb chicken or lightly spiced pork tenderloin; or after a meal simply on its own.
