Meyer Family Vineyards Méthode Traditionnelle Extra Brut NV

Okanagan Falls, Okanagan Valley, British Columbia, CanadaThe third time around, and this Okanagan sparkler continues to impress. It's more Bourgogne Cremant at this point, but I’m sure they are shooting for the Champagne ring down the road. It’s a 70/30 bottle fermented fizz with two grapes they know a lot about - chardonnay and pinot noir. The mousse is tiny, and the nose quietly mineral with salty, green apple. The style is vibrant, and the palate creamy with fuzzy pear and nectarine. Frico is my new favourite sparkling wine bite. MFV's Méthode Traditionelle Extra Brut is aged on its lees for 20 months and disgorged from May 2016 through to June 2016. In lieu of dosage, this was topped up with 2014 blanc de blanc base wine and bottled unfined and unfiltered.Tasted: 01 April 2019Tasted by: Prices: BC 34.88 winery direct Producer: Meyer Family VineyardsDistributors: International Cellars Inc.
