Bella Keremeos Chardonnay Ancestrale Sparkling

Product description

General Information

From the organic Robin's Ridge vineyard in Keremeos, this was whole cluster straight into tank, and cold settled before into neutral barrels and a stint under the cherry trees at Bella's Naramata property, waiting for a full wild ferment to do its thing (ferment finished in the winery to 10.8 percent alcohol). Zero additives, this was hand bottled and tagged; there is no label on the bottle itself, but a singular paper catalogue tag affixed by string to the cage. Lovely red and yellow apple, sweet orchard blossoms and a riff of grippy crushed stone is kept juicy and quenching on a lightly creamy palate. Off-dry, this gobbles up the 17 g/l residual sugar pretty swiftly.
