Cipes Blanc de Blanc is one of our most highly regarded wines. Previous vintages have been awarded platinum medals and international trophies, and the 2012 vintage promises to be no different!

A dazzling and complex expression of 100% organic Chardonnay grapes. Cipes Blanc de Blanc displays notes of  lemon, key lime, brioche and hazelnut with creamy, fine bubbles and rich, toasty character. Zippy acidity and seashell minerality refresh the palate, leaving your mouth watering for the next sip. Seriously elegant.

Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
"I love the sharp focus and the stony, salty, mineral notes. Electric on the palate, this sparkler is built for the ages with a foundation of Okanagan acidity that defines the north Okanagan as the true cool climate of Canada. Already six years in the bottle, you can feel the creamy textures and toasted lees notes that permeate its refined mousse, yet it has an electricity that sets it apart from most of its peers... This is real wine." –Anthony Gismondi, gismondionwine.com

Whole cluster pressed with extended sur lie aging. Disgorged in small batches.

Rubbery on the nose and mouthwateringly fresh with a pronounced minerality, salty almost. Also a little bit earthy and mushroomy with a moderate acidity. This sparkler is so crisp it’s electric.

Truly one of a kind and now a favorite.
