Golden, racy, classic.
Blue Mountain has long been known for their estate grown, traditional method sparkling wines and the value in each bottle--they're widely regarded for making exceptional fizz.
The 2018 (disgorged August 2021) is a blend of Pinot Noir and Chardonnay with a splash of Pinot Gris; the grapes were whole cluster pressed and each variety fermented separately. After fermentation the components were blended and inoculated with yeast and fermented a second time in bottle. Post secondary fermentation the wine was aged in bottle sur lie for 24 months.
It has golden glints and tiny bead with notes of wildflowers and yellow plum, golden apples, bread dough, mountain stream and brined lemons. It's a statuesque sparkling, bone dry and racy with a leesy palate along with mineral, lemon, hazelnut and tart apple flavours.
