Seven Stars Sirius 2015

Fraser Valley, British Columbia, CanadaWinemaker Mary McDermott is the force behind the new sparkling wine program at Township Seven. Yet, new is hardly a good description for the 2015 Seven Stars Sirius sparkler that has been ageing quietly for 60 months at the Langley-based winery. I have been tasting this wine for the last three years before its release, and it has not disappointed me. Sirius is a traditional serious sparkling wine made with pinot noir and chardonnay grown at the Township 7 Langley vineyard. Recently retasted with even more time in the bottle, the complexity and depth are coming to the fore. Look for sophisticated brioche dusted in citrus, followed by a creamy, mineral, red berry character that runs through the finish. Taut, stylish, and electric, it will keep for years in the bottle. A top-flight BC bubble you should try before it is all gone.Tasted: 19 April 2023Tasted by: Prices:
