RKS 2023 Wine: Cave Spring Blanc de Blanc Estate Grown Brut NV

Cave Spring certainly exhibited its strength in 2022 for both red and white wines. How does the Blanc de Blanc Brut fare?

Aromatics: Peach, pineapple, pear, guava, lime, butterscotch and almond croissant.

Palate: A nice sharp bite with slight notes of ginger, whole wheat toast almonds with some grapefruit on the finish.

Personality: I am just a regular guy from Beamsville in Ontario. I am just as good as many of those fancy smancy French Champagnes but I will let the wine writers toot their horn about me. I know who I am and I’m good. I am made the same way those French Champagnes are.

Food Match: fresh fig + goat cheese salad
pomegranate molasses, arugula, pine nuts, croutons.

Cellaring: Drink in 2023.

Cost: $32.95 (0ntario)

In a nutshell: Crisp, clean and straightforward traditional method made. 100% Chardonnay. Good value. The finish has more character than many Crémants.

RKS 2023 Wine Rating: 90/100.
