Two Sisters Vineyards Blanc de Franc 2016

Niagara River, Niagara Peninsula, Ontario, CanadaA classy, expressive, articulate sparkling wine made from a grape seldom deployed for bubbly outside the Loire Valley. Tasted blind, I loved the red berry scents, the excellent display of toasty, nutty complexity from lengthy bottle-ageing (16 months), and zingy, refreshing acidity. There's a red wine-like heft and phenolic bite that makes this an excellent food sparkler, and the absence of dosage puts the spotlight firmly on excellent Niagara-ripened Cabernet Franc.Tasted: 09 October 2019Tasted by: DJ KearneyPrices: ON 50.00 winery direct Producer: Two Sisters VineyardsGrape: Cabernet Franc
