This shows lovely freshness on the nose with a citrus core, green apple notes, baked bread and subtle toasted vanilla notes. The depth of flavour is a marvel with such beautiful texture from beginning to end. The focus is on the lemon/citrus flavours that light up the palate and turn mellow on the finish with just a hint of toasted spices.
From one of the original “terroirists,” who unleashed the potential for BC sparkling, this Pinot Noir/Chardonnay méthode traditionelle delivers a stream of fine bubbles with a toasty, brioche nose and solid mousse with firm apple and citrus notes through the mid-palate.
This single-vineyard, estate-grown traditional blend of 81% Chardonnay and 19% Pinot Noir spends over 3 years sur lees. Gold in the glass; persistent, fine bubbles with a good mousse and toasty classic biscuit aromas; apple and citrus on a medium-bodied palate with good mouthfeel, leesy and definite Pinot notes, citrus undertones and keen acidity.
Fine, persistent stream of bubbles; a firm, creamy mousse with definite brioche notes and citrus hints, followed by generous mouthfeel and abundant but refined texture, with red berry and toasty flavours and a lengthy, lingering close. A superb top-tier sparkling offering that’s more than a nod to Champagne.
A fine stream of bubbles with aromas of citrus and green apple, before a broadly textured but elegant palate, with yeasty and leesy notes, lemon zest and appealing mineral core and a persistent, lingering close. A fitting tribute to the legendary grower Denny Dulik, who passed away last November. He had the vision to plant Riesling sourced from St Urbans Hof some 40 years ago in his Pioneer Vineyard, which his father had bought in 1944 from JW Hughes. The vines formed the foundation for daughter Sue Dulik’s Pinot Reach Winery, and later for Tantalus, on which to build — and Dulik remained a formidable presence at the winery.
