The name derives from Therapy Vineyards and, perhaps you’ve already guessed, fizz. It’s a sparkling white blended from 90-per-cent chardonnay and 10-per-cent orange muscat. It’s more akin to Italian prosecco, with bubbles produced from yeast in a pressurized tank, than to Champagne, where the carbonation forms in individual bottles. Slightly off-dry, it’s gently fizzy, hinting at peach, apple and orange rind. An aromatic, pretty wine. Available from the B.C. winery by the $12-bottle case for $276. therapyvineyards.com.
