Story: Named Cuveé Peter F. Huff 2006 in honour of Lanny and Catherine Huff’s late son this sparkling is a proud addition to the Huff Estates roster of fine wines. The all-county Blanc de Blancs is fashioned in the méthode traditionnelle manner. Huff’s is the only winery in Prince Edward County to release a first and second vintage of methode champenoise sparkling wine.
Tasting Notes: Our crisp-edged 2006 cuvee displays a distinctive County minerality with underlying aromas of mandarine, orange peel, citrus, ginger and a hint of nuttiness. Blessed with a delicate mousse, it is augmented with flavours of dried apricot, toasted bread and freshly baked lemon pie, yet balanced with a subtle perception of sweetness. Brut--ifal stuff.
We're Joe & Del, "The Wine Couple", and we moved to the county for one reason: the wine! We found many other things here since we've moved (like the food, arts and the friendliness of the people) but we remain committed to our love of the wine!
