Wild Ferment, Méthode Ancestrale, Vantage Point Vineyard, Anthony Buchanan Wines, Oliver, BC, 11.5% abv., 2019

Cool, very cool.  This 89% Chardonnay with 7% Pinot Gris and 4% Gamay bubble is a hand-crafted gem by BC’s own Anthony Buchanan with only 2,500 bottles made.

Stopped with a crown cap, this sparkling wine is light gold with a soft mousse and delicate aromas of green apple, Asian pear, blossom and green meadow.

The palate is dry with food friendly acidity, and flavours of lemon meringue, and yellow apple.

At only 11.5% abv., this is wine you can enjoy all day long – with brunch, lunch, or pretty much anything.  The delicate flavours and aromas also help it pair with many dishes.  We had ours with freshly made prawn spring rolls and pad thai.

Open it carefully!  That crown cap pops off quickly.  It’s all fun and games until someone loses an eye.

Available at Cascadia liquor stores and Vessel on Vancouver Island.  Enjoy all summer long.
