2019 Joie de Vivre
Charmat method is a famous Italian sparkling style of second fermentation occurring in specialized pressure tanks to produce natural bubbles the same way that Prosecco is made. This complements our diverse Traditional Method sparkling portfolio and offers a new sparkling that is fresh, vibrant, fruity, and dry.
This ambitious project has been three years in the making and answers calls from Nova Scotia restaurants, NSLC and other wine trade for a fresh early-release sparkling. It has a relatively brief time in charmat tank to complete second fermentation and to keep wine fresh and fruity, compared to traditional methods of aging in bottle on its yeast lees for 2+ years.
The pandemic delayed our tank fabrication in hard hit northern Italy by over a year. The project has had many delays but our specialized equipment is in place and we are so happy to release this unique wine.
