Organic Heritage Series
Honouring the decisions of the past in the location of the vineyard & varietals planted.
Our Heritage label shows "clasped hands" in the joinery of our heritage barn - working together as family.
Love & Labour Since 1925
"It’s crisp, vibrant, and joyful on the palate with wild honey sweetness tempered by racy acidity, lime zest, bin apple, ginger, and savoury notes that all together is a deep, complex and minerally-driven Riesling with a fresh, saline finish. Bravo!"

“From the Heritage series at Sperling, this traditionally made sparkler is a blend of 80% Pinot Noir and 20% Chardonnay from vines planted in 2008. Both varietals are picked early (19 Brix) for maximum freshness and finesse. After primary fermentation (no malo), the two varieties are blended to form the final cuvée. The wine is finished with no dosage added and shows only 1.9% residual sugar. The nose displays brioche/leesy/smoky/mineral notes with bright citrus, toast, apple skin and fresh, fresh, fresh waves of salinity. It’s electric on the palate with tiny, persistent beads of bubbles and electric acidity to accentuate the freshness in the mouth. Shows tension and finesse with perky citrus and apple notes on a crisp and perfectly dry finish. I suspect this highly stylistic bubbly will gain fat and more complexity if you allow it to age in your cellar. A wonderful drop.” 92 pts

"It's an industrious afternoon at Gramma's kitchen table. Gramma is chopping rhubarb, crafting another of her famous strawberry rhubarb crisps. Giggling with each other, we sort through the bucket of rose-hips she collected this morning, pulling off the tops. The citric, juicy rose-hips stain our fingers, putting up one last fight before they boil down into jelly. We sip hibiscus tea, waiting impatiently for the dessert and hoping there isn't another bucket of rose-hips."
Enjoy paired with sweet barbecued ribs & fresh veggie slaw. Pairs well with salty & saucy dishes.
"Crisp green apple, Asian pear, lemon pith, & soapy pear blossom on the tight snappy palate, finishing clinically clean and straight. For those who like their gris squeaky clean and fresh."

"It’s a breezy day on the ocean walk. My hair is flying and you are holding onto your peach-coloured summer hat. The windy lifts up the white waves along the shore and carries sandy droplets in, spraying all of us walking by. Brilliant sun beats down, instantly evaporating the drops on the big boulders on the shore. The petals of the wild daisies crowded between the stones glisten with salt, waving their grassy leaves back at the ocean."
Pair with fresh shucked oysters, butter lettuce salad and sourdough bread. Enjoy with delicate seafood and light cheeses.

“I’m in right from go - clear tertiary development shows up alongside fleshy apple, pips and lime zest. The palate doesn’t dissapoint, showing an obvious pedigree of acids gliding alongside deft residual sweetness. Finishes long and textural in that way only Riesling can.” 92 pts

Nothing says linger, more than this perfectly balanced LH wine. With extra time on the vine, both flavour and acid-freshness are intensified. Linger longer over nuts, dried fruit, aged cheddar or even creme caramel.

“This old vine, organic Foch was planted in the 1960s by winemaker Ann Sperling’s (above) dad Bert. It produces low yields with berries that are high in concentration. It’s tight on the nose, but swirl away and it will reveal a range of cassis, anise, black currants and earth followed by earthy/forest floor notes. It’s highly structured and complex on the palate but the fruit pops with dark berries, a touch of kirsch, licorice, savoury herbs, earth and depth through a long and lively finish. History in a bottle here.” 92 pts
