The Wine

This sparkler walks the line between frizzante and spumante – a level of bubble that is approachable and delicious, without being too serious. The fresh and aromatic style features notes of pineapple, coconut, and mandarin orange. The palate is dry but balanced with fine mousse and a delicate mouthfeel.

2017 was a pretty normal year until sometime in July, when the first of the wildfires broke out. Every year has its challenges, in 2017, it was the smoke. Our brave vineyard workers donned their particulate masks day in and day out and worked through the difficult conditions. Meanwhile, our vines were hard at work producing beautiful fruit under smoky skies. Yes, there is
a risk that smoky flavours can find their way into the wine, but here at Monte Creek we took absolutely every effort to mitigate those effects. We pick in the early dawn to keep the fruit cold, hand sort absolutely every cluster of fruit, press lightly, and a myriad of other strategies. It’s a ton of effort, but the results are wines that are fresh, flavourful, and exactly what you would expect from a quality British Columbia wine.
