Serious, complex, elegant
Township 7 was one of the first BC wineries to make a traditional method sparkling wine, in 1999. After some sporadic years Seven Stars was reborn in 2015 under the guidance of winemaker and sparkling wine expert Mary McDermott.
Seven Stars is now its own brand and has five sparkling wines in the portfolio with plans to increase the offering to seven (stands to reason) in coming years; all are Seven Stars Club exclusives.
Made exclusively from Pinot Noir and Chardonnay from Township 7's Langley vineyard, the Sirius is, "Much more traditional style as opposed to some of the others we have," says McDermott.
Golden-yellow with a fine bead, the serious Sirius shows notes of apples crumble and lemon zest, wet stone, small red berries and stronger yeasty/autolytic undertones. Creamy with taut acidity it has complexity, elegance and notable delicacy. Classic styling, it has a bold lemony finish--a shining star in the portfolio.
