Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
Vancouver Island's premier Traditional Method Sparkling wine; Spindrift Brut is bottle-fermented on lees for a minimum of 12 months to produce exceptional fine and crisp bubbles. Honeydew and toasty brioche delight on the nose and crisp bubbles dance on the palate. Naturally vegan-friendly and gluten free.
Vineyard Notes
Terroir - Salish Sea: Soils consisting of sandy gravelly marine over sandy gravelly morainal leading to schistic clay at 12-16' depths. Elevation sloping 3° seaward. Hot to moderate day temp, cooling at night from the ocean breeze. Very mild winters, seldom reaching below 0°C. Farming: VSP (Vertical Shoot Position)/cane pruning (single and double cane). Sustainable farming methods, no synthetics and minimum organic certified products used.
Production Notes
Traditional method. Grapes are harvested earlier than table wines to ensure a higher acidity. Free run press only to stainless steel. Primary fermentation in tank, secondary fermentation in bottle. Triage minimum 19 months. 24-36 preferred. Riddled and disgorged at low temperature to ensure wine integrity.
Winemaker Notes
Grapes: Chardonnay - Clone 76 - Burgundy, Saone et Loire Pinot Noir - Clone 828 - Burgundy, Coté-d’Or
Food Pairing Notes
Pairs wonderfully with creamy cheese and celebrations.
Other Notes
89 - John Schreiner - March 2020 - This traditional method sparkling wine is made with Chardonnay and Pinot Noir. The grapes were harvested early, the winery says, “to ensure a higher acidity.” The acidity here is certainly racy (9.7% with no residual sugar). The wine has an active mousse, with aromas of melon and citrus and with tart green apple flavours.
