Bella Wines Buddha's Blend Rosé 2018

Okanagan Valley, British Columbia, CanadaB2, Buddha's Blend, was a 2017 experiment that worked so well it has continued. Unlike all of Jay's other fizz, this blends two grapes: chardonnay and gamay. Jay scooped suitable lees from his various single vineyard pressings around the Okanagan and Similkameen, and combined them into a single tank to native ferment, topping up as they were racking all their single lot wines. After five months on lees following secondary ferment, this was bottled with zero dosage. Wild raspberry, strawberry, cherry, rhubarb is kissed with sherry vinegar and taut with cleansing grapefruit acidity and a juicy mid. Snappy and salted on the finish. Quite singular process, and result.Tasted: 26 May 2019Tasted by: Treve RingPrices: BC 27.00 winery direct Producer: Bella WinesDistributors: Winery Direct
