Blue Mountain Brut Rosé R.D. Méthode Traditionelle 2016

Okanagan Valley, British Columbia, CanadaThis year's RD Brut Rosé raises the pinot noir to 67%, accompanied by 33% chardonnay. The two were whole-cluster pressed and fermented separately, then blended and added to the bottle for 30 months' rest on lees. This was disgorged with 10 g/L in August 2019, and released in November 2020. The elevated pinot this year is evident in this red-fruited fizz, with red berries, red apple leading the cushioned, doughy palate. While generous, the acidity is still bright, able to lead this fruity fizz to a gentle finish.Tasted: 09 January 2021Tasted by: Prices: BC 39.90 winery direct AB 39.95 private wine shops Producer: Blue Mountain Vineyard & CellarsDistributors: Keystone Fine Wines
