Blue Mountain Gold Label Brut NV

Okanagan Falls, Okanagan Valley, British Columbia, CanadaThis latest incarnation of the BC classic is from the 2017 vintage, and predominantly pinot noir and chardonnay, with its hallmark tip of pinot gris, and with 24 months on lees. My bottle was disgorged in August 2020. This showing is particular crisp and bright, with a nearly flinty reductive edge that chisels the orchard fruit. Green apple, crunchy red apple, flake salts, crisp pear lead the palate, one seasoned with nutty / toasty spices, and finishing with a wash of salinity. This used to be a dependable go-to BC fizz. Now, this has stepped up the game to be a serious sparkling. Well done Blue Mountain.Tasted: 26 July 2021Tasted by: Prices: BC 27.90 winery direct, private wine shops AB 29.85 J Webb Wine Merchants ON 34.95 LCBO - Vintages QC 34.95 SAQ Producer: Blue Mountain Vineyard & CellarsDistributors: Keystone Fine Wines
