    Wine Profile
    Production Notes
    The Chardonnay grapes used in this offering of our brut sparkling wine come from Block 6 on the northeast corner of our vineyard. The Clone 95 tends to produce clean expressions of Chardonnay, and we selected this section to produce our sparkling wine based on its clean, crisp fruit. When we pick these grapes for our sparkling wine production, the citrus and light tropical tones that we observe at full ripeness are not fully developed, but there are nice tones of green apple and crisp pear flavors in the fruit at picking. The Pinot Noir grapes used in this offering were picked from the south of our vineyard in Block 3. When fully ripened, Clone 115 tends towards darker berry fruits and a full rich mouthfeel. When picked early and whole cluster pressed, the juice is a beautiful salmon pink color with nice fruit aromas and flavors, and a crisp texture. Both varietals were whole cluster pressed and fermented in 2-3 year old French oak barrels. We stirred the leese very frequently during the early months of barrel aging that gradually backed off to allow the wine to settle. The base lots were aged on their natural yeast lees for an average 24 months in barrel prior to tirage (primary bottling). This batch was late-disgorged, meaning it was hand-riddled and hand-disgorged just prior to release. This wine was produced in the classic methode champenoise technique.
    Winemaker Notes
    This wine displays a fine persistent mousse upon opening. The aromas are green and golden apples, pears and pie crusts. There is a light creaminess that beams across the midpalate. On the palate the wine is fresh and crisp with a vibrant acidity and a nice refreshing finish that highlights the bright fruit. Drink Now Through 2016.
