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, this bottle has seen 66 months on lees, disgorged March 2022 in a lot of 600 bottles. From the limestone laced soils of Oliver's Cerqueira Vineyard, this powerful, salt-studded chardonnay is deeply lined with broken stones, bedding burnished lemon pith, crisp green apple, and savoury, almost bacon-fat kissed lees. Quite profound, this was an experiment that paid off strikingly.Tasted: 26 July 2022Tasted by: Prices:
