New to the wine list- Marionette Sur Lei by @marionettewinery
A blend of chardonnay & pinot gris, made in the same fashion as a style of white wine from Pays Nantais, Loire, France.
Sur Lie (soor lie), means "on the lees". After the wine is fermented, the dead yeast is left in the wine (instead of being immediately filtered). This adds complexity to the wine giving it a bready, yeasty character. This process is probably most famous in Champagne and also can be found in South Africa made with Chenin Blanc.
It's quite a unique style of wine, delicious and refreshing by itself, as an aperitif and pairs with light, salty foods. So far we like it a lot! #oakwoodseason #kitsilano #bcwine #salmonarm #yvrdrinks
