Blue Mountain Estate Cuvée Pinot Blanc 2019

Okanagan Valley, British Columbia, CanadaBlue Mountain’s pinot blanc vineyard, now 34-year-old vines (the clone is German), is manually thinned each year to keep the crop yield low. The fermentation is wild, in 17 percent stainless steel, 40 percent 35hl foudres, 17 percent in 500L barrels and 26 percent 4 year old French oak barrels, and all is aged on its fine lees for five months in the same proportions. A quiet white peach nose and subtle lees pull you into the glass. On the palate, mineral, citrus, wet stones, and sea salt all conspire to grab your interest. Certainly one of the best in the country, if not the continent.Tasted: 18 July 2020Tasted by: Prices: BC 24.90 winery online/direct AB 26.85 J Webb Wine Merchants Producer: Blue Mountain Vineyard & CellarsDistributors: Keystone Fine Wines
