WineDiva's Review

Precise, persistent, elegat.
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 30 months before being disgorged in August 2021 with an added dosage of 10g/L. It was aged an additional year in bottle.
A pale salmon-hued brut that delivers notes of crushed stone, wild red berries, tangerine, peach pit and dragon fruit with leesy/yeasty undertones. Expect a taut palate with bracing acidity and plenty of tangy citrus and red berry flavours. Elegant, precise and focused.
