Why We Love It:

With value like this arriving on LCBO Vintages store shelves today – I don’t need the services of a clairvoyant to predict an effervescent future for many of us reading this newsletter. This 100% Chardonnay sparkling wine has one foot deeply rooted in a traditional mineral driven freshness – the other in more expressive and modern style. The result is an immensely charming and drinkable sparkling wine as enjoyable as an aperitif as it is at the table with seafood, fish and lighter fare. Grown at higher altitude, and produced using many of the same traditional Champagne methods, this is truly a mind-boggling value at less than $25 per bottle..

Recipes & Food Pairings:

This 100% Chardonnay sparkling wine offers up the typical Blancs de Blancs profile of bright citrust fruit and rich toasty brioche notes. Given this combination of richness and freshness, it is an ideal pairing for your favourite fish, seafood and poultry dishes, or served as an aperitif:

Tasting Notes:

“One of a quartet of bubblies in the Anthonij Rupert range, this Blanc de Blancs marries Chardonnay grapes from Elandskloof and Darling. Late disgorged – and so reviewed as a new wine this year – it tastes much drier than its 8 grams of dosage, with chiselled focus and fine bubbles. 2019-24.”
