Approachable, zesty, fruity.
The Chronos label (along with TIME, McWatters Collection, and Evolve are owned by 5 Vine Cellars) and are made at the TIME Winery in Penticton. They have a series of new sparkling wines which have recently been released, this Chronos is a blend of Chardonnay with 20% Pinot Noir; it was made in the charmat method whereby the second fermentation happened in tank.
Warm creamy pears aromas dominate those nose and are underscored by honey, straw flowers and clay. It's an approachable and fruit forward fizzy wine with a kiss of sweetness and a lively bubble. The finish is zesty and trails yuzu citrus notes.
