"Rich and soft textured palate which is developed and complex. Ripe stone fruit, apple, pear and a buttery, even ginger palate. Soft and creamy mouth-feel." - Decanter Magazine

"This is a distinctive, mature sparkling wine that comes in a very striking bottle. Complex, rich, toasty and appley with lovely complexity. Pear, peach and nuts with some honeyed richness. Powerful, bold and long, with a sense of deliciousness. Sweet and savoury at the same time. 92/100" - Dr. Jamie Goode,

"Clear that this is the best sparkling wine BC has produced" - DJ Kearney, chief judge, Vancouver Magazine International Wine Competition

"An excellent and complex wine" - Rhys Pender, Master of Wine
