Hidden Bench Blanc de Blanc Zero Dosage 2014

Shipping calculated at checkout.

One of Ontario’s most praised low intervention wineries, Hidden Bench, only uses certified organic fruit. In many ways, just as importantly, they make great wine that really gives you a sense of place.

This is the second release of their traditional method sparkling, and you will note that it is “zero dosage,” meaning no drop of sugar was added after fermentation. All this to say that it is dry. And I mean arid-desert-parched-and-see-a-mirage-in-the-distance dry! It is intense, to say the least. The bottles were aged for four years on lees, so while the wine has a beautifully creamy texture, it packs a mad citrus punch with vivid passionfruit, coconut and almond cream.

Get this wine if you want an authentic expression of Niagara sparkling or feel like spoiling yourself and being exceptionally self-indulgent. While you are at it, bring it home and make lobster with herbed butter sauce.
