Awards:

Gold/Winner, Monticello Cup Award 2015

91 points, James Suckling

Tasting Notes:

Crisp and elegant with a soft, finely beaded mousse with notes of honey, baked apples, pear, toffee, and spice. It is rich and bold in style, but kept fresh by a balanced acidity. Enjoy with oysters, poultry, or serve as an aperitif.

Terroir:

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

Winemaker's 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.
