Not presented at the press and/or consultants preview in the LCBO lab. Received a sample from the agent Arterra - here is my note: Bright medium straw colour.

Fairly dry, medium-to-medium-light bodied, spicy, honeyed, apple-melon-lemon purée flavours with a zesty, effervescent finish. Seems to finish faintly sweetish.

TASTING NOTE: This captivating bubbly Savvy spent a full year ageing \"en tirage\" (on the lees) to extract body, flavour and aromatics without overpowering the delicate aromas of the variety. The result is a beautifully herbaceous wine with a gorgeous texture, creamy mousse and hints of fresh vanilla, green apple, gooseberry and snap peas. A fantastic choice for grilled or breaded fish with an herb salad. (Vintages panel, Oct. 2017) Price $ 29.95
