Huff Estates 2006 Cuvee Peter F. Huff Sparkling
This turned out to be a special bottle for me … the day I opened it was the day I learned I had joined the “money pit club” (as my parents called it) – yes I now have a home to call my own. But that news didn’t cloud my judgment about this wine – in fact it helped focus it, because now I can’t afford bad bubbly, if any bubbly at all. This sparkler is made with 100% Chardonnay which spent 3 years on lees in the bottle. The nose is toasty, biscuity with fresh bread aromas, hints of citrus, apple and slightly floral notes. The palate is delicate and dry: crisp citrus, green apple, buttered toast, creamy through the mid-palate with a good acid finish helping to clean the palate and readying it for the next sip. The bubbles are also very fine and very persistent a good thing over the long haul of an evening. This wine ranks amongst some of the best Ontario sparkling I have tried. Winemaker Frederic Picard has raised the bar for sparkling wine, not only for County fizz, but for all of Ontario. This one is downright delicious and what good bubbly should be. Price: $39.95 - Rating: ****½
