Bella Wines Reserve Brut Nature Oliver Eastside Chardonnay 2016

Oliver, Okanagan Valley, British Columbia, CanadaFrom Bella's black label series, indicating serious ageing has occurred to this traditional method fizz. Serious for sure, with 54 months on lees in this release, disgorged March 2021. 600 bottles. From the limestone laced soils of Oliver's Cerqueira Vineyard, this streaks along a saline palate, with broken stones, lemon pith and peel, green apple to a brisk, stony finish, kissed with almond. A more severe, savoury style drinking beautifully now, and with time ahead.Tasted: 04 July 2021Tasted by: Treve RingPrices: BC 55.00 winery direct Producer: Bella WinesDistributors: Storied Wines & Spirits
