This just might be the best Ontario sparkling rosé that I have tried to date; simply delightful. Score: 94/100
Tasting Note: Deep salmon in colour with fine mousse, good acidity, a medium intense nose & a long length on the finish. Wine features brioche, strawberry, raspberry, pomegranate, Spy apple, clementine, roasted almonds & limestone.
Interesting Point: This is JP’s 2020 batch, although it’s non-vintage, he has elevated it from his previous batches.
Pairings: Drink this now or in the next several years & pair it with Madawaska cheese & roasted almonds.
My Opinion: Highly Recommended
