SIGNATURE SERIES ICE CUVÉE ROSÉ SPARKLING Traditional method, Icewine dosage, VQA Niagara Peninsula, Ontario
Vintage Assessments Tasting Note Producer PELLER ESTATES
A REPEAT that was last released in Vintages (***) on November 23, 2019 at $35.95. Here is my previous note: Extremely pale day-glo salmon pink colour. Fairly intense, gently sweet, slightly spicy, honeyed, plummy, ripe strawberry nose. Gently sweet, medium to medium-light bodied, harmonious, bright, ripe strawberry-apple puree flavours with some tangy notes on the lingering, fairly crisp, gently effervescent finish. Ready-to-drink. This blend includes 10% Cabernet Franc and a dosage of Cabernet Franc and Vidal icewine with 12% alcohol and now 25 g/L residual sugar. CSPC 113035

TASTING NOTE: A lovely salmon pink, this versatile sparkler combines Chardonnay and Pinot Noir as the base wine with a dash of icewine. It displays sweet, almost honeyed, red berry fruit on the nose. Just off-dry due to dosage with Cabernet Franc and Vidal icewine, it has a fine, light mousse and replays the lively berry flavours on the palate - think of sun-kissed, field-ripe strawberries and juicy, ripe currant. It's refreshing with a hint of sweetness that lingers on the finish. This is bound to be a crowd-pleaser. Score - 93 (Susan Desjardins, winecurrent.com, Nov. 17, 2019) Price $ 36.95
