This traditionally made blend of 65% Chardonnay, 25% Pinot Noir, and 10% Pinot Blanc is a tribute to founder Harry McWatters and a celebration of his 50th vintage in the wine industry. It was aged for 42 months en tirage before disgorgement. It has a nose of creamy pear, toasty brioche, apple, lemon tart and biscuit with a lively bead in the glass. It’s fresh and lively on the palate with bright citrus notes, green apples, a lovely creamy texture, vitality, leesy/bready notes and an energetic finish aided by an elegant, persistent bead of tiny bubbles. A great tribute to an Okanagan pioneer.
