Blue Mountain, Brut, Methode Traditionnelle, Okanagan Valley, British Columbia, NV, C$24

blueWhat better way to toast three sisters being back together after two years apart than to start with some Canadian sparkling wine.

From the Okanagan Falls area located south of Penticton and north of Oliver in the Okanagan Valley, this sparkler is made from equal parts of Chardonnay and Pinot Noir with 6% Pinot Gris on top.

Although it has been made in the traditional method, there was a lack of bread or biscuit in this wine.

Pale lemon with a fine mousse (tiny bubbles a la Don Ho) it has an aroma and flavour profile of lemon citrus and Granny Smith apple.  The wine is dry and has medium acidity.

Simple, light and easy-drinking to enjoy with everyone.  WSET ‘Good’.

Drink now; do not age.
