Fitz Blanc de Blancs Sparkling Wine 2015

Okanagan Valley, British Columbia, CanadaTight, taut, racy and purposeful, the 2015 Blanc de Blancs from sparkling-focused Fitzpatrick Family Vineyards speaks volumes for focus. By this, I mean that it's obvious the winery is putting effort into its fizz, from vineyard management to harvest through to bottling, all making a big difference for this zippy wine, especially in a hot vintage like 2015. From their estate Greata Ranch, this chardonnay spent 36 months on the lees and was dosed with 3.1 g/L. Focus it certainly has in the glass as well, with lemon, light brioche, green apple, stones, sagebrush, and riveting acidity running the length of the linear palate, to a brisk, chalky finish. A more severe style for acid-freaks, like me.Tasted: 01 August 2019Tasted by: Prices: BC 42.50 winery direct, private wine shops Producer: Fitzpatrick Family VineyardsDistributors: Vintage West Wine Marketing
