Traditional method sparkling wine, aged 20 months on lees. Blend of 51% Chardonnay and 49% Pinot Noir. The first release of our sparkling Brut has lovely aromas of citrus, almond, biscuit and white peach. The palate is crisp, yet creamy with tiny, persistent mousse. Truly a stunning sparkling.
Chardonnay clone 76 and Pinot Noir clone 114 from our young or low vigour blocks were selected to harvest early for traditional method sparkling.
Chardonnay and Pinot Noir were harvested in early September of 2017 and 2018 between 18.5 and 19 Brix. The wine was fermented in a combination of stainless steel tanks, and neutral French oak barrels. Following tirage bottling, the wine aged on lees for 20 months until disgorging.
Food Pairing Notes
The texture and acidity of this wine make it a perfect pairing with antipasti, calamari, oysters and other shellfish.
