8th Generation Vineyard Integrity Frizzante 2017

Okanagan Falls, Okanagan Valley, British Columbia, CanadaIt's been ages since I had a chance to try this stylish frizzante wine from 8th Generation. This year's entry is a blend of chardonnay, pinot gris and kerner, sourced from Naramata, Summerland, Okanagan Falls and Lake Country. They keep the CO2 from the fermentation and inject it back into the wine to create the frothy mousse. This sweet fizz is centered on grapey muscat perfume and flavours, along with candied pear, peach nectar and lime cordial. Though kerner makes up only 18 percent, it dominates. Due to the process the bubbles are quite assertive and large, this best appreciated when super cold, and consumed before bubbles and wine warms.Tasted: 30 September 2018Tasted by: Treve RingPrices: BC 21.00 winery direct Producer: 8th Generation VineyardBlend: Chardonnay - Pinot GrigioCSPC: 233472UPC: 626990154150
