Blue Mountain Vineyard and Cellars N/V Gold Label Brut (Okanagan Falls) Okanagan Valley - BC
Availability: Direct from winery here
Cost: $23.90 including taxes
Date Tasted: December 15th, 2016
Tasting Notes: Produced in the traditional method and constructed like Champagne with finished wines from multiple vintages combined to create a consistent house style. This blend of 56% Pinot Noir, 39% Chardonnay and 5% Pinot Gris is the latest edition of their flagship Brut, disgorged in 2013 and now with a further 3 years of development in the bottle. All of which can be appreciated on the engaging nose and the bubbling, mouth-watering palate.
Look for fresh apple pie, lemon meringue and seashell aromas followed by a crisp, mineral-infused mouthfeel with flavours of lemon/lime, unpasteurised honey, peaches, stainless steel and light herbs. Finishes dry with lingering lemon rind and mineral notes. An absolute steal at under $25. Drink now or hold for 5-7 more years.
