Gold Star

With its frothy bubbles and kiss of sweetness, this handsomely presented sparkler is a class act. Itís crafted using the same method as Prosecco, which is a fitting tribute to Italian-born Gabe and Rossana Magnotta; and itís made from local-star Riesling and Vidal grapes, which is a nice nod to their Ontario winemaking venture. A portion of proceeds supports the G. Magnotta Lyme Disease Research Lab at the University of Guelph.

TASTING NOTE: Yellow straw color. Floral aromas and flavors of roasted peach, elderflower syrup, honey soaked tea cakes, and honeycrisp apple with a supple, crisp, fizzy, fruity medium body and an effortless, charming, medium-length finish with notes of tangerine peel, pineapples in cream, and lemon bar with no oak flavor. A cheerful sparkler with kisses of sweetness and heady florals. Highly Recommended.
