66% Chardonnay, 34% Pinot Noir
April 3, 2017
This fresh sparkling wine has aromas of citrus, pear, apple blossom, lime leaf and some nutty notes. On the palate it offers creaminess and a fine mousse with flavours of Granny Smith apple, pink grapefruit, melon and a hint of white pepper.
Chardonnay & Pinot Noir both have been cane pruned and then shoot and fruit thinned to produce 3.2 short tons per acre of Chardonnay and 1.5 short tons per acre of Pinot Noir.
2015 Pinot Noir was whole cluster pressed and fermented in neutral barrels to age on lees for 16 months. Chardonnay, Chardonnay Musque and Pinot Noir from the 2016 vintage were harvested, whole-cluster pressed and fermented separately. The 2015 vintage was blended with the 2016, bringing weight, texture and depth to the finished wine.
Food Pairing Notes
This bubbly would be great with crab, oysters, some light appies or some freshly buttered popcorn.
