Holiday Wrap : Ontario Ros Bubbles

We’re personally of the opinion that pink bubbles are appropriate for any occasion — especially a celebration. Why gift flat wine when you can give a gift that pops! Here’s our all-Ontario holiday wishlist that sparkles. Literally.

pellerroseSignature Series Ice Cuvee RosA� VQA
from Peller Estates

For those who love ice wine, sparkling wine, and rose, it turns out you can have it all. These bubbles are a traditional ?mA�thode� sparkling made with hand-picked Pinot Noir and Chardonnay, plus just a touch of Gamay. Just before bottling, they add some ice wine to make it extra special.

Get it at the winery. 
290 John Street East, Niagara-on-the-Lake, Niagara

hinterlandAncestral 2015 Method 
from Hinterland Winery

Tart and sweet, with notes of ripe cranberries and sour cherries, this is the perfect bottle for pre-dinner drinks. Named for the original way of making sparkling wine, the Ancestral is produced using similar techniques first employed by the monks of Saint-Hillaire abbey in 1531.

Get it at the EBW Farmers Market or the winery.
1258 Closson Road, Hillier, Prince Edward County

megaloBubblehead 2011
from Megalomaniac

A crisp, very elegant traditional method sparkler here made from 100% pinot noir. It’s curiously herbaceous with the slightest of bubbles. Like many of Megalomaniac’s pinots, the grapes for this bottle were harvested early during the season to preserve natural acidity and flavours, and then, ferment very cold in order to keep bright and clean fruit aromas.

Get it at the LCBO.
VINTAGES#: 363655

from Kew Vineyards

Refined, complicated, effortlessly cool, and oh so lady like. This bottle is as appropriate for Sunday Brunch as it is for Friday night cocktails. It’s fruity, dry and pairs with just about everything. Just like a little black dress.

Get it at the winery.
4696 King Street, Beamsville

huffCuvA�e Janine Sparkling RosA� 2012
from Huff Estates

Crisp, dry, and vibrant this County Sparkler offers some definite tart notes too. Think rhubarb, red currant and cranberry. That signature County minerality is also present. This wine makes us long for dill and smoked trout canapes piled high with chevre. We sense a celebration coming on, do you?

Get it at the LCBO.
VINTAGES#: 405035
