Winemaking:

The grapes from the Kinburn block were hand-picked, crushed and destemmed prior to gentle, small-basket pressing, cool settling and racking to stainless steel tanks for fermentation with cultured yeast. The Niagara grapes were picked and gently pressed, cool-settled and racked to stainless steel tanks for fermentation in Charmat tanks with cultured yeast. Following primary fermentation, both lots were blocked from malolactic conversion, racked off lees, blended together, bentonite fined and cold stabilized prior to sterile bottling, under pressure, to sparkling bottles and cork closure.

Tasting Notes:

This wine is light lemon in colour. Off-dry, and youthful with an pronounced yet fine and sustained mousse. There are delicate aromas of lemon rind, yellow plum, and wet stone. The vibrant acidity and balanced sweetness produces a bright, vivacious wine with an elegant and cleansing finish.
