Nichol Vineyard Extra Brut Rosé 2017

Naramata Bench, Okanagan Valley, British Columbia, CanadaPouring the palest blush hue, this new release from Naramata legend Nichol Vineyard takes pinot noir from the highest elevation vineyard on the property, and blends with five percent pinot meunier. Traditional method, this spends sixish months on the lees and is zero dosage. This was disgorged in July of this year. Brisk raspberry, orange rinse, whiff of cherries, raspberry, is taut with riffing minerality and finishes with some bergamot tea. Bone dry, enjoy this lean lens of Naramata as an aperitif. 180 total, half bottled now.Tasted: 30 September 2018Tasted by: Treve RingPrices: BC 30.00 winery direct Producer: Nichol Vineyard Distributors: Storied Wines & Spirits
