Our #FavouriteThings Holiday Gift Suggestions – Meyer Family Vineyards

Makers of some very fine wines that we have reviewed before on MyVanCity.ca. Most recently the Meyer Family Vineyards Pinot Noir.

This time we’re recommending the delicious Meyer Family Vineyards Methode Traditionelle Extra Brut Sparkling NV that we tasted at the Bubbles and Brunch at Terrafina at Hester Creek by RauDZ Chef meets BC Grape Okanagan Wine & Food Experience.

Paired with the third course prepared by Chef Brock Bowes, RauDZ Regional Table dish. Spring Salmon, Octopus Bacon, Amarosa Potato and Chive Rosti, Oliver Peaches, Brown Butter Hollandaise. The Meyer Family Vineyards Methode Traditionelle Extra Brut Sparkling NV really stood out.

For the wine lover on your Christmas list.

Our inaugural sparkling has a fine and persistent mousse thanks to the traditional method secondary fermentation in the bottle. On the nose the wine is subtle with elements of green apples and crushed rocks. Clean, crisp, and fresh palate with mineral notes wrapped in flavours of, orchard apples and pears, finishing with a rich and creamy texture from the extended bottle age. The wine is dry from start to finish making it the perfect aperitif wine.
