Brut is our classic champagne style sparkling wine. Made entirely with grapes from the 2010 vintage, the blend of which is 65% Pinot Noir and 35% Chardonnay. Lot 3 refers to this wines time spent aging; between each ‘lot’ of brut the wine has aged an additional 6 months with its lees. Lot 3 Brut was aged 24 months sur lie, bringing out classic brioche notes expected in a sparkling. Wet stone minerality, crisp acidity and soft bubbles nicely balance the flavours of white cherry and green apple.
Pair with Roasted Squash, Speck and Watercress Salad. Continue reading for the recipe.
Gamay Noir is an easy drinking, versatile wine with notes of mixed berries and plum with herbal notes and a delicately spiced finish. Extended aging in seasoned French oak barriques softened the acidity and developed complexity in this wine. Barrel selection from this vintage gave us a Gamay that had lots of structure, intensity and excellent balance.
Pair with Roasted Beet Ravioli with Chevre. Click here for the recipe.
For a sweeter finish we've included our Sparkling Riesling. This wine is a celebratory favourite with a touch of sweetness and notes of pear, peach and white flowers. It is a versatile food wine and makes an excellent aperitif or dessert wine. The delicate bubbles and acidity in the wine make it a perfect palate cleanser for appetizers or if you have a sweet tooth, pair it with a delicious dessert such as the one below.
