Fitz Blanc de Noir Sparkling Wine 2015

Okanagan Valley, British Columbia, CanadaThough 2015 was a scorcher year, this well made, tight, bright and brisk fizz shows Fitzpatrick Family Vineyards' talent for sparkling. Entirely estate pinot noir, this traditional method wine spent a minimum of 36 months on lees. The red fruit is gentle but present, with light cherry, young raspberry, red apple, pink grapefruit, and a pop of tart cranberry acidity. The briskness is tamed with a slick of lees on the palate and a slight 5.2 g/L residual, buffering the natural acidity. Structure and acidity make this a great partner for food, though it works lovely as a solo sipper as well.Tasted: 01 August 2019Tasted by: Prices: BC 42.50 winery direct, private wine shops Producer: Fitzpatrick Family VineyardsDistributors: Vintage West Wine Marketing
