Light and spritzy, with perfumed aromas of orange blossom, jasmine, lime zest and nectarine. Prepared Brut, the palate is crisp with none of the obvious sweetness that can sometimes be associated with this grape variety. Balanced acidity with flavours of stone fruit, honeysuckle, Asian pear, and a distinct floral quality that carries through from the nose to the lengthy finish.

Vineyard Notes
Orange Muscat: Shuttleworth Creek Vineyard, Okanagan Falls (gravels, glacial till & silty loam) Muscat Ottonel: Stag’s Hollow Vineyard (gravels & coarse glacial till) Riesling: Rolling Hills Vineyard, Okanagan Falls
Production Notes
Orange Muscat from our Shuttleworth Creek Vineyard, and Muscat Ottonel from our Estate Vineyard were hand-harvested, sorted, destemmed, lightly crushed and pressed into separate stainless steel tanks. Both lots of juice were cold settled for 72 hours, before being racked, warmed and inoculated with selected yeast strains. The fermentations were kept cool (below 13°C), and upon completion, they were racked from their lees and blended with a small amount of Riesling. The wine was then stabilized, filtered and bottled with in-line carbonation. 47% Orange Muscat, 46% Muscat Ottonel, 7% Riesling
Winemaker Notes
A fresh and vibrant wine with bright, natural acidity. The increased proportion of Orange Muscat used in this year’s blend, brings out a heady perfumed floral aroma, that is enhanced by the wine’s delicate carbonation.
Food Pairing Notes
Classic: Perfect all on its own as an aperitif, our Frizzante also pairs well with fresh fruit, fruit salad, pastries, charcuterie & cheese platters, breakfast & brunch dishes, fish, oysters and salads. Adventurous: spicy Asian dishes, creamy sauces, potato chips and fried foods
