Blue Mountain Gold Label Brut NV

Okanagan Falls, Okanagan Valley, British Columbia, CanadaThe standard for a reason, and the latest release of Gold Label Brut doesn't disappoint. In fact, it feels even sprightlier and livelier than ever. The latest release is based on 2014 fruit and disgorged in March 2017 - key intel on the back label. Okanagan Falls estate pinot noir and chardonnay is splashed with five percent pinot gris before two years on the lees. All are whole cluster pressed, and fermented separately before blending. Lemon zest leads this NV, with green apple, light biscuit, chalk across a nimble, lemony palate. Lively, bright and complete, striking a perfect chord between the bright acidity and the 8 g/l RS, this is deserving of its classic status and one of Canada's best bubbles, year after year.Tasted: 03 October 2017Tasted by: Prices:
