Jonas and I have a lot of difficulty writing tasting notes for our own wines. We feel it isn't possible to write without bias as we are influenced by the growing season and production of the wine prior to release. This is why we rely on the brilliant tasting ability of Daniel and Rob from Vinifera Wine Agency in Toronto. Only their heightened olfactory nerves and developed palate could produce the following tasting notes which Jonas affectionately refers to as tasting poetry:
Rosé 2009 Method Traditional:
Brilliant salmon ruby, with lively tight mousse. Distinctive and expressive ripe fruity nose, featuring macerated griotte cherry, myrtille, and cassis; very appealing and fresh with balancing chalky aromas. Lively ripe fruit attack echoing same berry melange, quite unctuous and palate coating, but also vigorous and mouthwatering due to ample acidity and a long chalky finish. A distinctive, vivid, and flamboyant sparkler that transcends the desire to emulate a top rose Champagne. Proof positive that Ontario, and particularly PEC are poised to compete with the best sparkling wines in the world-simply delicious!
