The Bub, Haywire, Okanagan Valley VQA, BC, 12% abv, 2014, C$29

Bottle fermented and aged in the traditional method, this bubble was purchased by daughter Jess.  I seem to have trained the child well – at least in that she has good taste in wine.  It’s topped with a crown cap, so bring along your bottle opener. 

Made of Chardonnay and Pinot Noir grapes, on the eyes, it’s pale gold with a boldly, effervescent mousse.

On the nose, there’s lime, Golden apple and Granny Smith with toast.  The palate is bone dry and shows flavours of lemon curd with lime, toasted nut and faint toffee.

WSET Very Good and beautifully balanced, this is a perfect wine for all sorts of toasts, and hey, that price point doesn’t hurt either.  Bring along a bottle to that New Year’s party you’re going to this weekend – you’ll be popular (well, moreso than usual!).

Readily purchased all over BC at private and VQA stores, or direct from the Okanagan based winery.
