Red Rooster Brut Traditional Method NV

Okanagan Valley, British Columbia, CanadaWinemaker Elaine Vickers has added two impressive sparklers to the Red Rooster range led by this delicious 52/48 pinot noir/chardonnay Brut, blending Oliver and Penticton fruit. The label has no vintage, but it is primarily from 2018. The wine is made in the traditional method, spending its secondary fermentation a full 36 months in the bottle adding layers of complexity and depth. It was disgorged in December 2022. We have been tracking this wine for a few months, and it's growing in the bottle. Plenty of fresh pear/apple fruit with a proper citrus undercurrent. Add toast and a clean dry finish, and you have a winner. This is a style of sparkling wine B.C. needs to double down on and leave the frivolous stuff to the larger global producers.Tasted: 29 June 2023Tasted by: Prices:
