Pale straw in colour, an exquisite mousse opens up to an explosion of ripe stone fruits open up like an oven door with freshly baked brioche. An xuberant mousse dances on the palate with a focused acidity and exquisite length making this an ideal bubble to pair with fresh oysters, caviar or just good friends.

WINEMAKING: With time and vine maturity, GVR will become the benchmark for Okanagan sparkling. This wine was a thrill to make. Structured elegance with old world intensity. It’s an exciting beginning. Pinot Noir, was whole bunch pressed to concrete tank for natural fermentation. There was 36 months en tirage before disgorging with zero dosage, which allows this site specific traditional method wine to showcase our high elevation Garnet Valley Ranch Vineyard.

Garnet Valley Ranch is home to the fruit that goes into this organic sparkler, in this case, all pinot noir, whole bunch pressed, and naturally fermented in concrete. It spends 36 months on its lees, building texture, length, and flavours, before it is disgorged and recorked with no sugar. The palate is dusty dry with a fresh lemony, almost saline nose pulling you into the glass. The fruit is pure green apple, with a touch of croissant and wet stone and a taut, lemony finish. An impressive wine that speaks to place and purpose, but for wine lovers only.
