Kitsch Blanc de Blancs 2017

Okanagan Valley, British Columbia, CanadaThe chardonnay in this blanc de blancs was planted in 2013 on the home estate in East Kelowna. The gravelly, stony soils seem well suited to the fresh, minerally, stony style, bursting with green apple, lemon, and almond. Two years on the lees gives a creamy undercurrent, adding to the refinement and complexity of the wine. It is well made and a fine example of what is possible when it comes to sparkling wine. Who knows, maybe sparkling wine will be the new export of the Canadian wine industry. It certainly has the gravitas to get the world's attention.Tasted: 17 November 2020Tasted by: Prices:
