Road 13 Sparkling Traditional Method Chenin Blanc 2017

Golden Mile Bench, Oliver, Okanagan Valley, British Columbia, CanadaThey make two chenin sparklers at Road 13 from the oldest chenin blanc vines in North America. The standard version is designed for early drinking and pure fun. Most attention is given to the acidity levels to keep the wine lively and fresh when the cork blows out. The primary fermentation is done in the tank, the secondary in the bottle, where the wine spends another three years on its yeast lees, building mouthfeel and palate length. Expect a fresh fruity nose with red apple, pears, and citrus before some toasted nutty notes pull the finish together and prepare you for your next sip. Ready to drink with your favourite Thai, Indian, or Chinese dishes.Tasted: 25 September 2021Tasted by: Anthony GismondiPrices: BC 40.00 BCLS Producer: Road 13Distributors: The Bacchus Group Inc.
