Bella Wines King Family Farms Chardonnay Sparkling 2020

Naramata Bench, Okanagan Valley, British Columbia, CanadaFrom Naramata's King Vineyards, this chardonnay was brought in over a two day pick, with most of the fruit resting overnight on skins. After a whole cluster press and native ferment, this had a tirage of Champagne yeast to kickstart secondary fermentation and its five months in bottle on lees, before hand riddling and dégorgement. Bright with lemon, lemon peel, river stone on a crisp, dry, lip-smacking palate, this hums along to a lingering citrus, smoked stone finish.Tasted: 02 July 2021Tasted by: Treve RingPrices: BC 33.00 winery direct Producer: Bella WinesDistributors: Storied Wines & Spirits
