Blue Mountain Estate Cuvée Pinot Blanc 2020

Okanagan Valley, British Columbia, CanadaThe 2020 showcases the estate's 35 year old Germanic clone vines to best result. This was whole cluster pressed and native fermented in a split of stainless, foudre, and French oak barrels, where it remained on fine lees, sans bâtonnage, for 5 months prior to bottling. Tight and bright orchard fruits (Asian pear, anjou pear, honeycrisp and green apples), are tautly lassoed by a lemon peel tightness, reeling this medium bodied white to a white grapefruit and saline finish. Leaner and edgier than past vintages, and all the better (food friendliness) for it.Tasted: 26 July 2021Tasted by: Prices: BC 24.90 winery online/direct AB 26.85 J Webb Wine Merchants Producer: Blue Mountain Vineyard & CellarsDistributors: Keystone Fine Wines
