Sparkling Chardonnay Musqué - Cliché 2016

VQA Ontario
100% Chardonnay Musqué
Alcohol: 11.0%
 Dry
Oak Treatment: none
Drinking Through: 2020
Service Temp.: 8 – 10˚C

Shattered! All convention is thrown to the wind. Adding fine bubbles to this rare and expressive variety was a bit of a tightrope act for the cellar as making a sparkling wine is like adding an amplifier to the flavours within. As Chardonnay Musqué is already extra flavourful by nature, the risk is in making something that is overpowering and undrinkable. No worries here. The cellar was deft in their creation of the base wine shaving the vintage down to a quiet, yet pure tone of bright citrus, Spy apple and dried peach/apricot. The mousse is creamy and the ever so slight hint of sweetness perfectly rounds out texture of this surefooted sparkler. Admiring the fine, controlled movements of this eccentric expression leave you in a new place, actually feeling more soothed than shattered.
