Bella Wines Buddha's Blend Rosé 2021

Okanagan Valley, British Columbia, CanadaBuddha's Blend, was a 2017 experiment that worked so well it has continued. Unlike all of Jay's other fizz, this blends two grapes: chardonnay and gamay. Jay scooped suitable lees from his various single-vineyard pressings around the Okanagan and Similkameen, and combined them into one tank to native ferment, topping up as they were racking all their single lot wines. After five months on lees following secondary ferment, this was bottled with zero dosage. Textural and light on its feet, with tart redcurrant, teeny wild strawberry, apricot, nectarine, and tangerine pith strung across a saline studded palate.Tasted: 26 July 2022Tasted by: Treve RingPrices:
