Taut, complex, profound.
Blue Mountain sets incredibly high standards for the Canadian traditional method sparkling wine category. Their family estate is well established, their conscientious viticulture and winemaking practices come from a solid understanding of what works for their site, and their fervent belief in who they are (as an estate) comes through in each and every wine they make.
Taut and nervy and made entirely from select estate Chardonnay grapes, it is aged, after bottle fermentation, for 6.5 years on lees to add complexity. It was disgorged in August 2018.
A golden hue is a prelude to a nose of apple turnovers, roasted nuts, lemon curds and bread dough. It is precise yet creamy, clean and complex with autolytic flavours and a buttery lemon flavoured finish.,br> Expect notable tension and finesse.
