Riesling & Gewurz & friends | We all know Piquettes are all the rage this summer, but what is, actually, a Piquette? Let’s get this out of the way for once & for all: it is a low-alcohol wine made from the second pressings of grape pomace, a wine style devised in France hundreds of years ago, which was known to have been enjoyed by farmhands. Pomace= the dense clumps of grape skins, seeds, stems and pulp that remain after juice has been pressed for wine. Waste not want not! We are personally so grateful for the existence of these spritzy, light & affordable sparklings, ideal for splashing around in a swimming pool or a long afternoon spent in a Toronto Island daze. ASIA’s piquette is a blend of Riesling, Gewürztraminer & Pinot Blanc dosed with a splash of organic Northern BC honey. Apricot Lacroix, peaches & cream candy, field of fuzzy wildflowers, juicy nectarine, Melona bar.
Pinot Gris & Gewurz & Merlot | The most perfectly pretty low ABV sparkler, like doing a deep dive into the Bulk Barn candy aisle. Spicy strawberry jam, a chunk of watermelon sculpted into a rose shape in an Edible Arrangement, guava Jarritos. This is the kind of wine that can make your seventy five thousandth date feel like a first date: crisp acidity, foamy mousse like a jet-ski slicing through a serene lake, Libra-level balanced, what more does one need?
Merlot, Cabernet Franc, Cabernet Sauvignon & Zweigelt | Made from grape pomace (the used clumps of skins, seeds, stems & pulp) and a touch of organic northern BC honey to kickstart fermentation, this old-school approach to sparkling wine produces a featherweight wine with light fruit, lower ABV and tons of easy drinking freshness, perfect for splashing around a backyard kiddy pool OR a good ‘ole game of Mario Kart with your pals. Raspberry shrub, sour cherry, Italian plums, freshly cut grass, rose petals & cranberry cocktail without the cocktail. Drink me ASAP!
