Free Form Blanc de Noir 2018

Garnet Valley, Summerland, Okanagan Valley, British Columbia, CanadaGarnet Valley Ranch is home to the fruit that goes into this organic sparkler, in this case, all pinot noir, whole bunch pressed, and naturally fermented in concrete. It spends 20 months on its lees, building texture, length, and flavours, before it is disgorged and recorked with no sugar. The palate is dusty dry with a fresh lemony, almost saline nose pulling you into the glass. The fruit is pure green apple, with a touch of croissant and wet stone and a taut, lemony finish. An impressive wine that speaks to place and purpose, but for wine lovers only.Tasted: 23 February 2022Tasted by: Prices:
