Oliver, Okanagan Valley, British Columbia, CanadaTownship 7's sparkling program is shining under winemaker Mary McDermott with the release of three traditional method cuvées: Polaris, Equinox, and Eclipse. It is a blanc de blancs of chardonnay from the estate vineyard on Naramata Bench, as well as Oliver's Hidden Bench Vineyard. It spends 18 months on it lees and is dosed with 9.2 g/L of sugar. White florals, yellow apple, pear blossom, lemon pith, wet chalk, and biscuits flood the palate, finishing with a snap and that gentle swell of sugar to counter the zippy acidity. Accessible, well made, friendly sparkling; more of this, please.Tasted: 29 March 2020Tasted by: Prices: BC 35.97 winery direct Producer: Township 7 Vineyards and WineriesDistributors: Renaissance Wine Merchants Ltd.
