PIXIE SPARKLING ROSÉ N/V
Availability LCBO Ddp # 492959, Winery Retail, Online
A frothy blend of Vidal, with a touch of Pinot Noir contributing flavour and the distinctive bright salmon colour. Pixie is barely off-dry, with peach, apricot, and tangerine flavours and lively refreshing acidity throughout the palate.
Pixie is perfect for any occasion jazzed up with a sprinkling of jewel-like pomegranate seeds or a fresh strawberry or raspberry.
“A blend of Riesling, Chardonnay and Pinot Noir that shows a vibrant pink colour in the glass with a lovely nose of strawberry, raspberry, citrus and peach. Slightly off-dry on the palate, but finishes relatively dry with a basket of red fruit and citrus flavours all kept lively by freshening acidity.”

“A light, pretty Ontario sparkling wine with notes of field strawberries. Works as an aperitif or companion to steamed lobster. Food pairings: summer salads, hors d'oeuvres.”

“Easy drinking and very fruity with a hint of sweetness on the finish that is balanced out by the rustic, tonic like bubbles. Keep it cold and drink it back.” Bill Zacharkiw, WineAlign.com
“Fruity, off-dry, with riesling-like honeyed flavours, sharp acids and basic length. Simple and easy drinking - a wine for a time and place, neither timeless nor universal. Serve chilled and enjoy without excess contemplation.” John Szabo, WineAlign.com
