The Vineyards

The fruit from Indigo was sourced from Rosehall Run’s own Chardonnay Musqué (64%) and Muscat Ottonel (36%).

Winemaking

This aromatic blend underwent a second fermentation using the Charmat Method, which results in fine and plentiful bubbles and a slightly dry finish.

Tasting Notes

Opens with gentle citrus fruit and fresh floral scent on the nose with lively bubbles bursting with fresh lemonade, pear, apricot characters on the palate and a lingering refreshing finish

Food Pairing Suggestions

This is a great aperitif sparkling wine, also great with green leafy salad with fresh fruit, or a very pleasant choice with raw oysters or fish carpaccio. This wine is very food friendly, pairing perfectly with any simply prepared chicken, turkey, white fish or shellfish dishes.

Critical Acclaim

“This vintage-dated, Charmat method, sparkling wine delivers aromas of honey, citrus, floral notes and exotic spice then mouthfuls of palate flavour with grilled pineapple, honeydew melon and lemon chiffon pie dominant. This is crisp and refreshing, balanced and bountiful with fine-bead bubbles tingling on the palate from flip top to last drop. It finishes dry and delicious, lip-smacking good. Pour when welcoming guests, keep pouring with lighter-styled appetizers.” Score 90 Vic Harradine, winecurrent.com

 “Imagine prosecco made not with the Italian glera grape but with such aromatic varieties as muscat ottonel, chardonnay musqué… This is refermented in large tanks, according to the charmat style common to prosecco, versus the méthode traditionnelle of Champagne. Tart, musky and offbeat, it vaguely tastes like a ginger-ale-based “sangria,” with pieces of pear, apple, white table grape and preserved lemon floating in the pitcher.” 10 bargain Canadian bubblies that can rival French Champagne by Beppi Crosariol, The Globe and Mail
