Narrative XC Method by Okanagan Crush Pad NV

Okanagan Valley, British Columbia, CanadaNarrative is OCP's line of approachable, friendly, pure Okanagan wines at equally friendly prices. Pale salmon in hue, the latest XC Method (XC in Roman Numerals speaks to 90 days in tank) is a charmat method sparkler made from pinot noir and chardonnay from Secrest Mountain Vineyard in Oliver, and Watkins Family Vineyard in Summerland. Soft on the palate, just off-dry with strawberry jam, herbal raspberries, mandarin and wild blackberries, bracketed with bracing acidity and housed in a snappy, appealing 11.5 percent package. So much flavour and character here, best enjoyed as an aperitif with charcuterie or over a lazy weekend brunch.Tasted: 27 July 2017Tasted by: Prices: BC 24.90 winery direct, private retail, restaurants Producer: Okanagan Crush Pad WineryDistributors: HQ Wine + Spirits
