Ontario Reviews

Hinterland 2007 Rosé Sparkling
This is the third winery, I can think of, that is making a County Sparkling, and the first making a pink bubbly. When I reviewed another fizz from the County I made mention that the winemaker was raising the bar for Ontario sparkling – I may want to extend that comment to the whole of Prince Edward County, if this kind of quality continues across the board. A blend of 90% Pinot Noir and 10% Chardonnay aged 16 months on lees in bottle and finished off with a dosage (that’s the addition of wine after the lees is removed) of Cabernet Franc. This bubbly has a hint of strawberry on the nose but it’s on the palate where this wine speaks in volumes. The smells let on that this might be a sweety fruity fizz, yet the palate is dry apple with nice acidity and a prolonged finish. A real stunning sparkler. Price: $37.20 – Rating: ****½
