Road 13 Sparkling Chenin Blanc 2013

Okanagan Valley, British Columbia, CanadaSharp and toasted orange, bitter marmelade and searing cut in this fruity, simple, sparkling chenin, one that has ample verve and acidity, but lost its balance this vintage - especially compared to the pristine finesse of vintages past. Ample toast, red apple, soft and frothy on the palate, with a bitter-edged apple peel on the finish.Tasted: 15 March 2017Tasted by: Treve RingPrices: BC 40.00 winery direct, private wine shop, VQA Producer: Golden Mile Cellars (aka Road 13)CSPC: 820696UPC: 626990081333
