Pristine, lovely, classic.
Located on the upper Golden Mile Bench, Culmina was established by the Triggs family (of Jackson-Triggs fame) in 2007 and was sold in 2019 to Arterra Wines Canada.
A first for the winery, this traditionally made bubble is comprised of early harvested Merlot and Cabernet Franc that saw minimal skin contact and the second fermentation was done in bottle.
Expect a pale rose gold bubbly with bready/brioche notes underscored by wild berries and grapefruit, peaches and wildflower honey. The palate is moussy with bold red apple flavours woven with peach, berries, honey and floral tones. Lovely structure, good length and a pristine character overall.
