2008 Sparkling Reserve- Library Wine

Terroir:

This wine is from 100% estate grown fruit.  Our vines are sheltered in the foothills of Carter’s Mountain in the Monticello American Viticultural Area (AVA).

Winemaking Notes:

This Brut is made via Méthode Champenoise with our best Chardonnay. Hand picking at night and gently pressing ensures that this wine retains all of its best qualities. After a combination of stainless steel and French oak barrel aging, the wine gains complexity by aging on the lees in the bottle for a minimum of 5 years.  At disgorging, a low dosage is added to balance acidity and improve mouth-feel. 

Tasting Notes:

Sparkling Reserve 2008 is 100% Chardonnay and is made with our most expressive vineyard blocks. Aging in 25 percent French oak as well as extended lees aging in tirage softens and lengthens the mouthfeel. It is crisp and elegant with a soft finely beaded mousse and has notes of honey, baked apples, pear, toffee, and spice. It is rich and bold in style but kept fresh by a balanced acidity. Pair with oysters, poultry, or serve as an aperitif.
