Haywire Baby Bub

Haywire Baby Bub 2018

Okanagan Valley, British Columbia, CanadaBaby Bub is among the very first releases of the year at Haywire and despite its “Bub” moniker, the reference is not about sparkling wine but rather the childhood nickname of family member and promotions and sales director Alison Scholefield. It’s a charmat sparkler made from chardonnay and pinot noir picked from winery-owned vineyards in Oliver and Summerland. The vibrant pink-orange colour comes from a dash of still red wine. The style is just off-dry and juicy with primary red fruit and just enough cranberry acidity to balance the sweet-ish finish.
