Canadian Pinot Noirs with Caché and Quality

"Think of pinot noir, and you think immediately of Burgundy, the premier region for the wine. Think of other benchmark areas, and you might come up with Oregon’s Willamette Valley and New Zealand’s Central Otago. Other places, such as Tasmania in Australia and Russian River Valley in California, have also made their name.

When will Canadian wine regions join the list?

Canadian pinot noir is well known to many wine aficionados, but in general it’s far too little appreciated. Who would have thought that it will soon become the most-planted wine grape variety in British Columbia? It has trailed merlot for some years, but the area planted in pinot noir is rising quickly, while merlot has stalled. If this disparity in growth rates continues, pinot noir will surpass merlot by 2025..."

Sperling Vineyards Blanc de Blancs 2013

Wine Align, tasted by Michael Godel

91 points

"There is no dosage in this directly motivational Blanc de Blancs and plenty of potential palate weight with thanks to 30 months spent on the lees. There is something top single-vineyard cru Alsatian about the savoury and searing coolness in this style, as if it were more than just the sum of chardonnay parts, like some hypothetical pinot blanc and perhaps auxerrois. There is some reductiveness, a lovely washed rind cheese, lemon scrape melted into curd and fine bitters. The flavours are really quite lemony tart. Striking really. School of Cool moderator Karen MacNeil described this like "a nun in catholic school, severe and a bit starched. I’d like to try it a bit sweeter, to mollify the tension." Though the consensus is one that sees it under-dosed, you have to admire Ann Sperling's "decision based on lees contact time." To make it longer. The sharp, angular edges are a by-product of its aggressive nature but like sémillon in its lean and gaunt youth this B de B will develop some faux honey and petrol with age."
