Precise, elegant, complex
Blue Mountain is a family-owned and operated winery locaed in the sub-GI of Okanagan Falls. They've been grape growers on their stunning estate site overlooking Vaseaux Lake for decades (since '71) and followed up making wine under the Blue Mountain label. Sparkling wine is not the only thing they do, but they are most well-known for it and have set the sparkling bar high in Canada.
This sparkling pink (a blend of Pinot Noir 70% and 30% Chardonnay) was aged on its lees in bottle for 27 months; it was aged an additional year in bottle.
It's a pale peachy-salmon-hued brut delivering aromas of small red berries and red apple skin and bread dough. It has a fine bead and lovely mousse with dry tangy red berry and apple flavours alongside tangerine. Complex, pretty and elegant.
