A selection of four 3 oz. glasses

Each month we are pleased to feature a flight of wines from around the world, showcasing various grapes grown in different regions that offer drastically different flavour profiles. This month we invite you on a Sparkling Adventure, a delicious aperitif to complement oysters, scallops, sashimi, or to simply sip and enjoy. Please buckle your safety belts, find your nearest exit and enjoy your flight.

Pares Balta Brut Cava Cataluna, Spain
Pale yellow in colour, this wine offers medium intensity on the nose, with toasty notes combined with aromas of pear and apple. Fresh and alive in the mouth, with dominating notes of fruit, it is a blend of Parellada, Macabeo and Xarel-lo grapes.

Taittinger NV Brut Reims, France
The brilliant body is golden yellow in colour. The bubbles are fine, while the foam is discreet yet lingering. The nose, very open and expressive, delivers aromas of fruit and brioche, with notes of peach, white flowers (hawthorn, acacia) and vanilla pod.

Henry of Pelham Cuvée Catharine Niagara Peninsula
One of the classiest pint bubblies from Ontario shows a subtle nose of fresh raspberry, icing sugar and fresh bread—altogether like a delicate raspberry pastry. It’s light to mid-weight and vaguely sweet, with a fine, racy effervescence and a drier, bracing finish.

Majolini Franciacorta NV Lombardia, Italy
The 2,800-hectare wine region of Franciacorta in northern Italy was carved out of the sedimentary rock between 50,000 and 150,000 years ago, by the toing and froing of an Alpine glacier. Franciacorta the wine was created in 1985; although, it only “won” its DOCG status in 1996. The grapes now used are predominantly Chardonnay and Pinot Noir, with Pinot Bianco. This is David to Champagne’s Goliath. A truly remarkable beverage.
