When you’ve got big celebrating to do, we’ve got the wine for you. Both our Jackpot and Road 13 Traditional Method Sparkling Chenin Blanc bring just the right amount of sparkle and spirit to ring in the holiday right.
“These old vines produce less fruit than younger vines but the quality is off-the-charts in terms of complexity and concentration of flavour.”
2012 Jackpot Sparkling
special occasion wine
Perfect for toasting the host with the most.
“There is an additional 5 years of ageing that goes into making this Jackpot Sparkling. That combination of pressure and time creates a creaminess on the mid palate, a little bit more weight, and a very fine, elegant bubble.” – Barclay Robinson, Winemaker.
$87 / bottle
“The wine is amazing! This was my first vintage of Chenin Blanc and we strategically harvested these grapes to ensure we captured the right balance of acidity and tropical fruit flavours. There are also some honey notes that don’t develop until after the wine is bottled. This kind of development requires a bit of a leap of faith, but I think it’s already paying off!”
The bubbles in sparkling wine are a product of CO2, which is absorbed when fermentation occurs under pressure. Sure, making a Traditional Method Sparkling takes more hours and more time but we wouldn’t have it any other way. Both the Road 13 and the Jackpot Sparkling Chenin Blanc are labours of love and proof that there’s no shortcuts to greatness.
“This Traditional Method Sparkling comes from some of the oldest Chenin Blanc vines in North America!” Robinson explains. “Great balance between the fruit and acid combined with a delicate mousse make this a celebration-worthy wine.”
