Westcott Vineyards Brilliant 2017
Westcott Vineyards Brilliant is a sparkling wine born through the traditional French Champagne method.
Lively, elegant and beautifully balanced. A cool climate style wine with fresh acidity, great salinity and bright fruit. A smooth melange of green apple, apricot, pretty almond nuts and just a hint of lemon sherbet.
66% Pinot Noir, 33% Chardonnay from the Westcott Home Farm Vineyards. This 16 hectare vineyard sits in the Vinemont Ridge appellation of the Niagara Region at an altitude of 170 metres with a 3% southeasterly slope. The soils are pockets of Beverly and Cashel clay loams and Alluvium till along the creek that traverses the property. Underlying these topsoils is very deep Halton Clay till overlaying the dolostone and limestone bedrock of the Niagara Escarpment. These soils are extremely calcareous.
Crafted in the traditional French Champagne method. 30 months on the lees. Hand riddling, disgorging and labelling at Westcott's winery by Grant Westcott and winemaker Casey Kulcyk.
