2013 Vineland Estates Brut Reserve mini review

Pale in color with a nice crisp nose. On the mid palate the wine is a nice crisp dry bubbly. Lovely citrus notes. The bubbles are nice and fine. The medium length finish has some nice acidity. This is a very food friendly wine. I would give it an 88-89.

From the winery’s web site:
Varieties: Pinot Meunier (49%), Chardonnay (42%), Riesling (9%) Region: VQA Ontario Country: Canada Vintage: 2013 Alcohol: 12.0% Acidity: 9.15 Bottle size: 750 mL
The fine, “creamy” bubbles lightly dance on your tongue delivering a distinct, enlivening
and bright citrus chorale. Clear notes of fresh apple, peach and pear whisper almost undetectably from the wings in this effervescent presentation of subtlety and nuance. A mouth-watering acidity ensures this sparkler is enjoyable as a solo or as the perfect pair for oysters on-the-half-shell and other fresh seafood. Celebrate life as you drink in this liquid Ode to Joy!
