Haywire Vintage Bub 2013

Okanagan Valley, British Columbia, CanadaVintage Bub is the first of an extended aging program for Haywire's impressive fizz program. 500 cases of the 2013 vintage were put aside and given an additional five years of lees aging before release. This is pinot noir and chardonnay from Oliver's Secrest Vineyard, fermented in concrete and stainless, before bottling in November 2015. You can consider this the older and more experienced member of their fizz family, a project overseen by sparkling winemaker Jordan Kubek. The maturity is evident right away, through a deeper hue and oxidative aromas, with earthy, wild mushroom dough, brioche, green apple peel, all with a backbone of lemon-laced acidity propping up and elongating this wine. Lovely precision, excellent length, amazing value. Will be released in summer 2017.Tasted: 31 May 2018Tasted by: Prices: BC 34.90 winery direct, private wine stores Producer: Okanagan Crush Pad WineryDistributors: Winery Direct
