Approachable, lovely, fresh.
The TIME label (along with Chronos, McWatters Collection, and Evolve are owned by 5 Vine Cellars) and are made at the TIME Winery in Penticton. They have a series of new sparkling wines which have recently been released, this TIME Brut is a blend of Chardonnay 45% and 55% Pinot Noir; it was fermented in oak and stainless steel and made in the charmat method whereby the second fermentation happened in tank.
Nutty praline and orange blossoms, quince, honey and clay aromas lead to a juicy palate with good concentration and a lively bubbles. More complex than most Proseccos, this fizz has leesy/nutty undertones and Jonagold apple flavours. Nice concentration here, a lovely little bubbly.
