Lightning Rock Blanc de Noirs Canyonview Vineyard 2018

Summerland, Okanagan Valley, British Columbia, CanadaOne of two traditional method single vineyard blanc de noirs released in 2018 (in addition to one single vineyard blanc de blancs), this 2003-planted pinot noir comes from Canyonview Vineyard's sandy and granite-studded soils. After a whole bunch press, this native fermented in large old puncheons until going to bottle and resting on lees for 13 months. This was disgorged with zero dosage. Zesty and tight with pithy grapefruit, green apple, cherry blossom, and salted wild strawberries. Energy abounds here, finishing bone dry, with a lingering salty snap.Tasted: 02 April 2020Tasted by: Prices: BC 30.00 winery direct Producer: Lightning RockDistributors: Sur Lie
