Brut nature refers to the driest style of sparkling wine. Almost all bubblies get topped up prior to final corking with a mixture of sugar and wine. This step, known as dosage, counterbalances the wine’s naturally high acidity. Brut nature, or zéro dosage, wines skip this step to achieve the ultimate in bone-dry effervescence. It’s an under-appreciated category and holds great appeal for acid heads such as yours truly. This one carries flavours of apple pie, roasted nuts and honey-lemon tea. It’s made from organic grapes, too. Available in Ontario.
