Natalie's Score: 92/100

A vibrant, zesty BC sparkling wine from one of the country's best producers. This blanc des blancs (white from white grapes) is made from 100% estate grown Chardonnay. It's made in the traditional champagne method, and aged sur lie for 5 and half years for extra creaminess and richness. Aromas of green and golden apples with freshly baked bread. Superb. Pair with shellfish and seafood.

Reviews and Ratings

Andrea Shapiro rated this wine as 93/100 with the following review:

A gorgeous sparkler from Okanagan Valley - Blue Mountain Vineyard and Cellars. Love these elements of baked biscuits, green apples and a splash of lingering lemon citrus that carried into the back. Aged on lees for 6.5 years. Brilliant acidity nestled with a hug of fine, delicate mousse and a dry, lingering finish. Perfect for any festivity or accompanying fresh seafood. 93 points - December 2019

Unquenchable by Natalie MacLean

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a fiesty North American answer to Hugh Johnson and Jancis Robinson. She can write beautifully about wine.

There are very few people in the wine world who "get it" and Natalie is one of those who brings more fun to a buttoned-up and stodgy game.
