Blue Mountain Sauvignon Blanc 2014

Okanagan Falls, Okanagan Valley, British Columbia, CanadaA blend of two clones, one high density vineyard and 7-8 year old vines make up this sauvignon blanc quickly becoming one of BC's best. More complexities come via a whole cluster pressed ferment with wild yeast, and, 30 percent was barrel aged and fermented in French oak sur lie for 2-4 months. Stone, light toast and pear is brightened by tart green apple, white grapefruit and gooseberry in this finessed, medium bodied white. Fine lees and finer spices linger on the lengthy, savoury citrus finish. Can age for the next 5 years, but drinking beautifully now with halibut.Tasted: 05 August 2015Tasted by: Treve RingPrices: BC 19.00 Winery direct - private wine stores Producer: Blue Mountain Vineyard & CellarsDistributors: Keystone Fine Wines
