Rootstock planted in 2005 - 2007 from France on glacier till soil facing the Salish Sea.  2014 brough perfect climate to this perfect Coastal Cool Climate terroir.

Aromas of honeydew backed with delicate toasty bread.  This rich creaminess and fine bubbles of a traditional method sparkling pairs well with Island crab.

Karl from My Wine Pal says this: 40 Knots Spindrift Extra Brut 2014 ($36.90) – “This limited release 2014 spent 2 years on lees, aging in our cellar. Disgorged in 2014, with no dosage.” This wine has medium plus gold colour, producing small bubbles in a light mousse that dissipates quickly when poured. Medium intensity nose, showing lees, baked and bruised apples and light toasty aromas. It is dry with crisp tart apple flavours to start, added later with baked apples and then lees. Higher acidity. Small bubbles that start off not quite creamy, but if you let the wine stay in your glass for a few minutes the wine becomes very creamy when sipped. The creaminess fills your mouth. Medium plus length with toastiness lasting to the end. You also get some salinity at the very end. This wine reminds me of excellent Champagne. Rating: What else can you ask for? 5 stars
