Narrative XC Method by Okanagan Crush Pad NV

Okanagan Valley, British Columbia, CanadaXC is a charmat method (tank fermented) pinot noir and chardonnay blend sourced from Oliver's Secrest Mountain Vineyard and Summerland's Watkins Family Vineyard. In this case the tank is on its side, reminiscent of a Champagne bottle during its secondary ferment. Lively and off-dry, fresh and clean, with red apple, ripe pear and a toasted brioche base. A riff of mandarin acidity works to offset the RS here, though a pleasant pear / orange blossom remains. Treve nailed its demeanour calling it “a grown up, and local, variant of Prosecco.” All hail diversity.Tasted: 01 May 2017Tasted by: Prices:
