Haywire Vintage Bub 2014

Okanagan Valley, British Columbia, Canada2014 is here, but it was a pleasure drinking 2013 for several years. Translation, this sparkler was built to age in the bottle. The Vintage Bub is a serious bottle of fizz that gets extended ageing at the winery and is released only when it is showing its best. Both 2013 and 2014 were aged on its lees for 60 months before disgorgement, in this case, June 19, 2021. Like its predecessor, this stony, earthy, leesy bubble is a winner already and will continue to improve in bottle. The acidity is perfect, and the dusting of Okanagan sagebrush, licorice, and minerality only heighten its appeal. Drink or hold, and don’t be afraid to serve it with richer menu items.Tasted: 23 February 2022Tasted by: Prices: BC 43.90 winery direct, private wine stores Producer: Okanagan Crush Pad WineryDistributors: HQ Wine + Spirits
