2016 Steller's Jay Mountain Jay Brut
Aromas of citrus and green apple, with hints of biscuits and semi-toasted almonds. The palate is crisp and clean with a pleasant and persistent mousse, while the refreshing acidity provides a long, clean finish. A well-orchestrated blend of 38% Chardonnay, 34% Pinot Blanc, and 28% Pinot Noir
The harvesting of our premium Pinot Noir and Chardonnay grapes for Mountain Jay Brut begins in mid to late September which assures ideal sugar levels. The Pinot Blanc follows and is added to the Brut base. Early harvesting of these grapes ensures a crisp, fresh acidity in our traditional method sparkling wine.
Food Pairing Notes
Steller’s Jay Mountain Jay Brut displays smooth flavours which complement a variety of dishes. This dry, delicate sparkling pairs beautifully with flavourful seafood dishes such as sushi, caramelized sea scallops or rich lobster risotto. And never forget the simple luxury of a fresh chocolate dipped strawberry with a glass of Steller’s Jay.

I am currently drinking a bottle of this with my spouse. It is the perfect mix of dry, crisp with taste of granny smith apple. Clean finish. Good to drink on its own or with white chocolate covered strawberries. I have also had the Steller's Jay 2007, excellent as well.
