Road 13 Sparkling Traditional Method Chenin Blanc 2017

Golden Mile Bench, Oliver, Okanagan Valley, British Columbia, CanadaRoad 13's Sparkling Chenin Blanc has become an iconic wine not just for the estate, but for the entire Okanagan Valley. And for good reason: it's restrained with crystalline citrus and orchard fruits on a chalky frame, with subtle toasty notes in the background after aging three years on its lees. Nicely balanced with crisp acidity and a modest dosage (7 g/L), there's an impressive level of finesse here. Perfect with cream-based shellfish dishes.Tasted: 26 October 2021Tasted by: Prices:
