Blanc de Blancs
After the War of 1812, the Canadian government awarded Richard Kew the plot of land on which the vineyard sits today. His brother William maintained ownership of the land and ran a successful carriage making business out of the very house in which our retail space is located.
Blanc de Blancs are historically some of the most prestigious Champagnes and Sparkling
Wines. Rich in colour and body, these wines define and embody a luxe, celebratory spirit.
Produced solely from Chardonnay, our Barrel Aged, Blanc de Blanc was barrel aged six months prior to us bottling it for secondary fermentation. Not only does this provide an added dimension of complexity to the wine, it is an Old World technique that truly demonstrates our winemaker Philip Dowell’s level of skill and artistry in creating balanced
On lees for four and a half years, this sparkling wine is a beautiful straw colour with a rich mousse. Vanilla and a touch of toasted walnut are present on the nose. The palate is lively and full of vibrant lemon, lime and ripe pear characteristics. Much like you would expect out of a barrel aged Chardonnay table wine, the finish on this sparkling wine is long, balanced and decadent.
