2018 Organic Speritz
ORGANIC, VEGAN & GLUTEN-FREE
“This light and lively, slightly sper…itzy wine is a 50/50 blend of the obscure perle of csaba grape, and slightly more familiar bacchus. Ann Sperling, one of Canada's most famous winemakers, makes this from the biodynamically-farmed, limestone-laced Kelowna land that her grandparents settled more than 150 years ago. You can think of this as a local spin on northern Italy's Moscato d'Asti. Mid-sweet and light (only 7.9 degrees alcohol), this is all fragrant roses, perfumed honeycrisp apple, pink grapefruit and gingerale. Acidity is grapefruit laced and ample to keep this sweetie lively. Pair with pavlova, or sweeter brunch dishes.”
Treve Ring, Gismondi on Wine
Speritz – made from THE oldest vinifera variety grown on the farm – Perle of Csaba – a muscat variety that was first planted in 1929. The style is aromatic and spritzy, light (7-8% alc.) and refreshing to reflect the wines that our great grandparents would have enjoyed daily in their native Piedmont.
