Tantalus Blanc de Blancs 2018

Okanagan Valley, British Columbia, CanadaThis pristine blanc de blancs comes off one block from their Kelowna estate, fermented in older puncheons and barrique, and aged on lees until the following May, when it was transferred into bottle for second ferment and 22 months on lees. This was disgorged in March 2021 with 6 g/L dosage (from the 2018 Chardonnay). Crisp and bright, this rings with lemon pith and peel, before a vibrant palate of green apple, stony minerality, bedded with a layer of lees and humming with energy. Very much northern Okanagan, drinking beautifully now, and with some time ahead in cellar.Tasted: 15 May 2021Tasted by: Prices: BC 31.30 winery online/direct, select private retailers, restaurants Producer: Tantalus VineyardsDistributors: The Wine Syndicate
